Kentucky’s lopsided win over Michigan State was a good win but UK fans shouldn’t base a whole lot on that game.
The Spartans are really struggling early this season. Tom Izzo’s team has already lost to Arizona and Kentucky.
Tonight, they needed a clock error in their favor to hold off Florida Gulf Coast 78-77.
FGCU had a chance to go the length of the court and win the game, but the MSU clock operator started the clock early and time expired before the Eagles (1-3) could get a shot off.

Ending of that Michigan State game was a complete joke. Clock operator should have worked his final game.

Worst ending I've ever seen to a game. If that's not cheating I don't know what is. #michiganstate
