John Calipari’s team rallies for SEC road victory

All Reed Sheppard ever wanted to do is play for Kentucky. While imagining that script for himself, he also conjured up a scenario every child with a basketball dreams of: hitting a game-winning shot for his beloved Wildcats.

“Then if you miss it and you get the rebound,” Sheppard said, “they added time on the clock.”

Neither happened Tuesday night in Starkville, Mississippi.

Sheppard’s aim was true. And time didn’t have to go back on the clock.

Given his performance, time might as well have stood still for Sheppard — and for a UK fan base that treasures the home-state star.
