HALF: Kentucky 30 Texas A&M 26

After twenty minutes of play, Kentucky leads Texas A&M 30-26 in College Station. Considering their five-minute scoring drought early in the game, the fact that the Cats have a four-point lead right now is huge.

After a few bad games, Kevin Knox has looked much better and leads the Cats with eleven points, followed by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with six. Hamidou Diallo, Jarred Vanderbilt, and Wenyen Gabriel all have two fouls, with Hami playing only six minutes so far. As a result of the foul trouble, Brad Calipari logged some rare first half minutes, grabbing a defensive rebound in his short time on the court.

Kentucky’s shooting is still not ideal, at only 36.4%, but they held A&M to 30.6%. Let’s hope the strong finish to the first half carries over to the second.

    Win or lose this game, I’m proud of this first half. Some mistake but also a little of capitalization of their mistakes.

    This team is FAR FAR worse than the NIT team.

      The remaining road games will go about like this one…SEC foes smelling blood in the water.
      They may be able to beat Ol Miss at home playing like this…but that’s even questionable.

    Cal must have had a really nice speech at halftime. Probably made some timely adjustments also.

    Let’s have some real hypothetical fun. Who would be the ideal replacement for Cal? Izzo? Brad Stevens? Donovan?

      Bryce Drew at Vandy, he’s recruited 2 McD All-Americans to Vandy!

    Worst coaching Cal has had. His team has no fight. Confused on offense and defense. They are giving up on him. Biggest sign of a losing coach. Wave the white flag. NIT

    Cal should play the ESPN replay to the team…commentators tellin truth and video doesn’t lie. Team lazy.

    11 minutes to go im turning the game off for the first time this season. I’ve tried to be optimistic and supportive to a fault all season and if I’m wrong I’ll eat my words but not a single one of them gives a sh*t about anything and won’t win another game

    This is brutal. I hope these guys come back. We really won’t be any good if these mediocre one and dones keep bouncing early. We either have to start landing the best of the best again or get these guys to stick around. I know there are too many people that are negative on here, but I have to outlet my frustration somehow.

      Why do you want them back. 1 year isnt going to make a huge difference they are terrible.

      no. 1 year can make a difference and I want them back as you should, and they will be back like it or not

      We can be positive n speak life over it, but if u are lazy and play like this…yeah NIT!

    Well, well, well… I was called a NIT tard on an earlier post because I said A&M would blow the doors off, which would start a downward spiral to the NIT. You people seriously think this team is NCAA bound? Absolutely not. Sad that A&M has a player busting his A$$ with a TORN ACL while Kentucky jogs up the court. Unbelievably pathetic. Bunch of entitled punks who think they make it in the league. They’ll wind up in the G-League or overseas with the effort they’ve put into this season.

      Yeah but Cal has to have representation on draft night. Hes gonna rush a couple guys out.

      you were wrong about one thing. the downward spiral had already begun in columbia

      Being critical is one thing, but “entitled punks” is out of line IMO.

    I wonder if anyone has told these kids that they suck? At what point of the recruiting process did coach think any of these guys were good.
    I mean Vanderbilt may be one of the worst players I have ever seen offensively.

    Really? Is it football season? We suck at football and will always suck at football. I’m not giving up on our boys yet
