After 20 minutes of play, Kentucky leads Arkansas 36-27.
Nick Richards leads the Cats in scoring with eight points, followed by Ashton Hagans with seven and Immanuel Quickley with six. With Tyrese Maxey in foul trouble, Johnny Juzang has played ten minutes so far and looked good, hitting 2-3 from the field, including a three. Let’s hope that confidence starts to snowball.
Kentucky is shooting 44% from the floor while holding Arkansas to 39%. That Razorbacks are 6-8 from the outside, so the Cats will need to continue to clamp down on the perimeter to keep Bud Walton Arena quiet.
