Kentucky falls to Michigan State in double-OT

Defending National Player of the Year  returned to action for fourth-ranked  on Tuesday night against  in the Champions Classic. And, after missing the first two games of this season following a knee procedure, Tshiebwe seemingly picked up right where he left off last season.

Tshiebwe scored 22 points and grabbed 18 rebounds, his 18th consecutive double-double, and added four blocks for good measure. Even with all of that,  was able to hold off the Cats 86-77 in double overtime.

While Tshiebwe was certainly the story on this night, freshman continued his strong early-season play as well. Wallace had 14 points, five rebounds, five assists and eight steals. The eight steals tied the  school record, which has been accomplished by three players previously ( in 1997,  in 2005 and  in 2018).
