This Day in History: 2010-02-17

On March 14, 2010, Kentucky won their 26th SEC Tournament championship in thrilling fashion, beating Mississippi State 75-74 in overtime in front of 20,082 fans at Bridgestone Arena. DeMarcus Cousins’ putback with no time remaining sent the game to overtime and John Wall’s leaning three-pointer over a defender gave UK just enough cushion to beat State in extra time for the second time that season.
