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.
