HALF: Kentucky leads Alabama 45-35

After 20 minutes of play, your University of Kentucky Wildcats lead the Alabama Crimson Tide 45-35.

Once again, Kentucky’s veterans are leading the way. Nick Richards has 11 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 blocks, well on his way to another double double. Immanuel Quickley has eight points, including two threes, and Ashton Hagans and Tyrese Maxey each have seven points. Hagans also has six rebounds, five assists, and three steals. Nate Sestina gave the Cats a huge boost off the bench with two threes and two blocks.

We knew Alabama would come into this game firing, but so far, Kentucky’s shooting is the biggest story. The Cats are 18-32 (56.3%) from the floor and 5-7 (71.4%) from three. Maybe John Calipari was right after all?

    Said, woman, take it slow
    It’ll work itself out fine
    All we need is just a little patience
    Said, sugar, make it slow
    And we come together fine
    All we need is just a little patience

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and say we aren’t going to keep hitting 70% from 3, and they aren’t going to be limited to 3 threes in the 2d half. So, good as it is to see us hitting, we are playing the game they wanted. We need to stop the TO’s and grab those boards, and get ready to get in the paint. If EJ never takes an 18 footer again I’m ok w it. Upside is they hv gotten a couple of lucky buckets to be that close w “look what I found” buckets after a good defensive play and that will level out. But we hv a long way to go… they can score 50 in a half.

      Thanks. Someone sabotaged the mobile app, I believe…our lack of rebounding has cost us a nice lead

      That’s a good question 4ever. I don’t get it. Fatigue? Focus? I don’t know.
