Alabama opened up the game with a 28-0 run thanks to full court pressure that led Kentucky into piling up turnovers at the Viking Classic being held at the Tennessee School for the Deaf. Aaron Howard’s 3-pointer put finally got Kentucky on board. Youth and inexperience was a big factor for Kentucky. Kentucky had 28 turnovers with 20 of them coming in the first half. Howard and Yance each had a three-pointer. (Contributed by Coach Leslie Stayer, Jr.)
