Kentucky falls to Michigan State in double OT
Playing at full strength for the first time on Tuesday night, they failed in their first major test with a double-overtime loss.
In the first round, both teams struggled offensively.
But Tshebwe's return from preseason knee surgery changed the course of the game.
The reason for the change was that the best player of the year entered the game.
He had one offensive rebound to give Kentucky an early lead.
The first half after Sehveer Wheeler scored late in the 8:41 mark, Kentucky held a slight lead.
Michigan hit a three-pointer to take a 36-34 advantage by the end of the half.
Despite several turnovers in the second half, Michigan scored an easy basket at the end of regulation.
