After 20 minutes of play and 26 fouls, Kentucky trails Kansas State 33-29 in the Sweet 16.
I wish I had some good things to tell you, but I really don’t. Kentucky looked horrible, shooting only 26.1%, 20% from three. They were incapable of getting into any kind of rhythm thanks to all. those. fouls. Hamidou Diallo left the game briefly after turning his ankle, but quickly returned…only to pick up his third foul. Kevin Knox, Quade Green, and Wenyen Gabriel all have two fouls. Thankfully, Kansas State is facing plenty of foul trouble as well. The only reason Kentucky’s in this right now because of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who has 13 points, 11 off free throws.
Here’s hoping for a much better second half.
