Kentucky Falls at Louisville

Carlik Jones made two free throws with 5.1 seconds remaining for 20 points, David Johnson added 17 points and held off rival 62-59 on Saturday.

The Cardinals (6-1) led 56-49 late in the half before the Wildcats (1-6) rallied to tie the game at 59-all on Isaiah Jackson’s free throw with 1:05 left. After Dre Davis made one of two free throws to put up 60-59 with 18.9 left, Olivier Sarr’s jumper rimmed out and fouled Jones, who made the free throws for a three-point edge.

Jr.’s wide-open 3-point attempt with a second left bounced off the rim and was rebounded by Jae’lyn Withers, helping end a three-game series losing streak while handling its sixth consecutive loss, the longest such streak under coach John Calipari.
