HALF: Kentucky 33, South Carolina 25

After a very ugly half of basketball, Kentucky leads South Carolina 33-25. They should be up by way more than that.

The story of this game so far has been fouls. The refs have called 23 so far, slowing the game to a crawl and reminding us how bad officiating has gotten in college basketball. I could go on, but I probably shouldn’t. You know what I’m talking about.

In between whistles, Kentucky looked okay. Nick Richards leads the Cats in scoring with nine points, but went to the bench with two fouls with 10:28 left. Ashton Hagans, Tyrese Maxey, and Immanuel Quickley all have six points each, while Nate Sestina chipped in four and Kahlil Whitney two. Quickley has now made 10 of his last 11 threes, which is pretty dang good.

Kentucky is shooting 43% from the floor while holding South Carolina to 24%. Have we mentioned today the Gamecocks are poor shooters?

Here’s to a better second half…

    Little friendly coaching advice for Cal; introduced Quickley to the rest of the team; even the announcers are noticing that the guy making all his shots…isn’t getting any shots.
    The announcers are noticing all the “strange calls” too. But what do we expect from Pat Adams?

      And, what’s are 1st shot of the 2nd half; Brooks with a corner three.
      And, for pete’s sake, Nick…let the guy have the bucket. We’re going to blow this one if someone doesn’t elbow Cal and wake him up.

    Without question, the worst officiated game I have ever seen in my life. That includes pee week ball, middle school ball, high school ball, college an pro ball. These guys are terrible.
