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?
