Video: Alex Poythress' Dunk KO's Louisville Late

UK back on track?

The 'Year of the Cardinal' will end on a sour note, after all. Kentucky notched its first (very much needed) victory over a ranked squad Saturday afternoon as the Wildcats took down the defending national champion Louisville Cardinals, 73-66. A tight game turned in UK's favor in the final eight minutes, as four different Wildcats - Julius Randle, James Young, Aaron Harrison and Andrew Harrison - scored in double figures. But it was Alex Poythress who delivered the death blow to UL. 

Poythress' slam put the Wildcats up 10 with 1:42 to play. They hung on from there.
