Story: Kentucky falls to 3-2 in SEC play after losing to the Tide in Tuscaloosa. Alabama took the lead mid-second half when Bama's Andrew Steele converted a three-point play to go up 41-38 on the struggling Cats and never looked back. Down the stretch, Kentucky had countless turnovers and missed numerous free throws. It was an ugly loss.

Alabama moves to 4-1 in SEC play. Kentucky takes on LSU Saturday at Rupp Arena.
