Antonio Reeves scored 27 points but third-seeded Kentucky lost to Oakland 80-76 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Pittsburgh.

Reeves made 11 of 18 from the field, including five of nine from behind the arc on his way to his 20th 20-point game of the season.

UK got 14 points and 13 rebounds from Tre Mitchell. Rob Dillingham and Justin Edwards each had 10 for Kentucky.

Kentucky got on the board first on a Mitchell jumper. However, both teams went cold after that, missing 11 shots in a row between them, a streak that ended with a DQ Cole three that gave Oakland a 3-2 lead.
