After falling at LSU on Tuesday night, Kentucky has now lost three games this season. All three were close losses that came down to the very end of the game.
The Cats have had their struggles down the stretch in those three losses. And that’s why, according to forward Oscar Tshiebwe, UK has a new focus word – finish.
“One thing I would say we struggle with a little bit (is) to finish a game,” Tshiebwe said. “So, we’ve been working on the last minutes to finish a game. We’ve got to know how to finish.”
A closer examination of UK’s three setbacks illustrate that point. In the season-opening loss to Duke, the Cats trailed by just four, 69-65, with 6:07 to play. However, Duke would score seven straight points and would eventually win by eight.
In UK’s loss at Notre Dame, the Cats led 62-61 with 1:50 to play, only to see the Fighting Irish score the final five points of the game.
