Ballislife favorite Julius Randle only had 8 points in Kentucky’s 77-76 overtime win over LSU on Saturday but he had the biggest 2 points of the game when he grabbed his 15th board (7th offensive) and put up the game winner with 3.9 seconds left.
“Luckily, that one fell right into my hands,” Randle said.
“I was telling him in every huddle, just get an offensive rebound to win the game,” coach John Calipari said. “He was in a mud wrestling match. Just release, go run and get the ball. He just released it, grabbed it, stuck it in. We win.”
It was a nice rebound game for the rebounding beast who only had 6 points and 5 rebounds against LSU the last time they met.
