NASHVILLE — Georgia freshman Charles Mann couldn’t keep his team from losing to LSU here Thursday, but he would not deny that a regular-season win over Kentucky was one he’ll remember.
“Just beating Kentucky, the defending champion, was a great feeling. We played well and had some tough losses but that showed us we can play with anybody when we can handle Kentucky like that. It’s a game you don’t forget,” Mann said.
Mann said he knew UK’s freshmen from playing against them in AAU games in high school.
“I played against all of them. I played Archie (Goodwin) a lot. He is a good player. A slasher/score. Just a good competitor like he is now,” Mann said. “It’s no surprise what he is doing at Kentucky this year. I knew he was capable of putting up numbers and doing what he is doing because he’s always done that.”
Tennessee senior guard Skylar McBee said the Vols’ 30-point home win over UK “definitely” was memorable for him.
“It is one of those things that Kentucky is an opponent we respect, but it is a rivalry,” McBee said. “It is one of those things where you really want to beat them when we get to play them. Doing that the way we did is definitely one of the games I will remember the rest of my career.”
