Evansville stuns #1 Kentucky 67-64

Kentucky falls to Evansville

So, naturally, Matt Norlander and I got together Wednesday morning to talk about it for a new episode of the CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast. In addition, 6-foot-9 sophomore DeAndre Williams only began playing for the team this month after being ruled ineligible last season, and he contributed 9 points, 3 assists and 2 steals at Rupp.

In one of the biggest upsets in recent college basketball history, Evansville beat No. 1 Kentucky 67-64 on Tuesday night in Lexington, marking the program's first victory over a No. 1-ranked team. Junior guard Sam Cunliffe had a productive game off the bench for the Purple Aces as he pitched in 17 points.

It's just the second week of the college basketball season, but Evansville may have already delivered the biggest upset of the year. He said he told his team that it could win at Kentucky, where he won a multitude of games as a player, if it stood strong in the opening minutes and refused to allow the crowd to become a factor. "They made shots, and that's tough to do in this building".

The loss snapped Kentucky's 52-game winning streak over unranked non-league opponents inside Rupp Arena.

Asian equities fall on persisting doubts over US-China trade deal
Trump said he would raise tariffs on Chinese goods "very substantially" if China does not make a deal with the United States. Benchmark 10-year German government bond yields fell the most for a day since June, down 6 basis points at -0.3%.

Overall, Kentucky went a rough 20-of-54 from the field and 4-of-17 from 3-point range. The man in the middle of the celebration: head coach Walter McCarty, an All-SEC member of Kentucky's 1996 championship team. "We played with confidence and we stuck to the game plan". We may say three weeks later that this is the best thing to happen to us. "Our guys stuck to the game plan and we executed, and we really trusted each other".

McCarty's team held as much as an eight-point lead at various points in the first half, took a 34-30 lead to the locker room and pushed it back to a seven-point edge early in the second, but Kentucky kept chipping away. Even after they managed to tie and take a brief lead, they were beaten to loose balls and could never get over the hump.

It's the first time in the AP poll era that two No. 1 teams have lost in November. "They had guys who wanted to win and wanted to play hard for 40 minutes".

Kentucky next hosts Utah Valley at 7 p.m. EST Monday and Evansville hosts Indiana University Kokomo at 7 p.m. Thursday.
