UCLA came out punching and landed a knockout blow, upsetting Kentucky 87-77 on Thursday night for its first victory over a No. 1 team since 2003.
“This win is very, very special just because of what happened last year,” Alford said. “Not only were they the number one team in the country, we had seven points in the (first) half last year.”
Thomas Welsh led five Bruins in double figures with 21 points and 11 rebounds.
