John Calipari’s team rallies for SEC road victory

Reed Sheppard has been one of Kentucky’s most consistent players this season. To pull off a comeback Tuesday night at Mississippi State, UK needed everything he could offer.

Sheppard, the freshman phenom and son of a pair of former Kentucky players, responded with one of his most well-rounded efforts. It even came with a side of last-second heroics.

Sheppard hit a running floater with 0.5 ticks left that proved to be the game-winning bucket. 

The London native had 32 points, five rebounds and seven assists as No. 15 Kentucky rallied from a 13-point second-half deficit to notch a 91-89 victory at Humphrey Coliseum in Starkville, Mississippi.

Sheppard’s point total was a team and career high; fellow freshman guard Josh Hubbard had a game-high 34 for Mississippi State.
