Western Kentucky beats MVSU

Western Kentucky came down from 16 behind to win the game against Mississippi Valley State University with a final score of 59-58. MVSU is coached by UK alumnus Sean Woods.

Halfway through the second half, I nearly updated my facebook status to say that Sean Woods would receive a standing ovation at the YUM Center on Thursday being a former Wildcat at all.

But games like these? It's why we watch March Madness. The thrill and excitement.

As far as comebacks go, it does not quite touch the Mardis Gras Miracle in Baton Rouge in 1994, when UK was down 68–37 with less than sixteen minutes left to go in the game. Of course, Kentucky would go onto outscore LSU 62–27, and win 99–95 what is easily one of the greatest comebacks in college basketball history.
