The Kentucky Wildcats took on the South Carolina Gamecocks last night in an SEC battle with Kentucky winning the high-scoring game, 86-76. The Wildcats have been impressive so far this season, stunting an impressive 20-4 record and a top 5 ranking.

With a team as good as this, you would think that bettors would be making a ton of money off the Wildcats this season. While that may be true, this game featured one of the worst beats so far this college basketball season.

The spread sat at -10.5 with Kentucky up 10, having possession with only 9.2 seconds left. A Kentucky player passed the ball into the backcourt to star forward Oscar Tshiebwe. He chose not to dunk the ball on a wide-open fast-break until after regulation.

While you would expect a team to run the clock out like Tshiebwe did most of the time, you can see everyone on the bench including coach John Calipari telling him to dunk the ball. He ended up doing it but only after regulation, meaning it didn’t count. That one is certainly going to sting for a little bit if you were a Kentucky bettor last night.

Kentucky will look to keep its success going this weekend when they take on Florida on Saturday, while South Carolina will look to rebound when they take on Georgia on Saturday.
