The Kentucky Basketball team played the second of its four games in the Bahamas on Thursday night against San Lorenzo de Almagro, a team from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The Wildcats looked more comfortable from the start of the game. Quade Green, who only had 2 points in the first game on 1-11 shooting from the field, hit two quick jumpers. 

Reid Travis also got his game going much faster on Thursday than he did in game one. He hit three straight shots from the field for the Wildcats to put them in front 23-16.

It was freshman, Tyler Herro, that stole the first half show. He knocked down a jumper from the free throw line, hit another from close and then knocked down three, three pointers. The final two closing out the first half as he finished with an unofficial 15 points.

The first half actually ended early because the lights went out in the Imperial Ballroom at Atlantis where they are playing the games. Sirens were going off with two minutes left so they called it early. They decided to play a 22 minute second half. UK leading at the break 45-27.
