College basketball: A third top four team lost on Tuesday

It was a rough day to be a top five team in college basketball on Tuesday night.

After losses to No. 1 Villanova and No. 2 Kansas, the No. 4 Kentucky Wildcats became the latest top-ranked team to fall victim to an upset in conference play.

Kentucky was taking on the Tennessee Volunteers when they were upset, 82-80.

The game snapped a seven-game winning streak for the Wildcats.

Kentucky, which was trailing by 11-points at one point in the second half, was able to rally and make it a competitive game. Unfortunately for Big Blue Nation, they came up short.

Lamonte Turner, who scored ten points on the night for the Vols, secured the win with two game-clinching free throws in the final five seconds.
