The last time Kentucky didn't make a 3-pointer was at the Great Alaska Shootout against Seton Hall in the fall of 1988 - when Eddie Sutton was in his last year with the Wildcats, LeRon Ellis was the team's leading scorer and the 3-point arc was only in its third year in the college game.

Because they did enough in the paint and from the line, they also snapped another, shorter streak. Sacha Killeya-Jones added eight points and six rebounds off the bench.

When asked if he could envision losing a game in this era when the opponent did not make a 3-pointer, McKillop said: "When you send them to the line for 32 shots and they hit 80 percent of them, you put yourself in jeopardy". The Wildcats ranked 344th in three-point rate this year out of 351 teams. Only 26 percent of their attempts have been from 3.

Davidson didn't go away quietly in the final minute, but was unable to come closer than five as KiShawn Pritchett's three-pointer with two seconds left brought the game to its final score.

But, he said, it would be nice to make one or two along the way.

The Cats did not come out of the locker room for the second half with the same kind of defensive focus and intensity they showed in the first half. "We're just not one of them".
