HALF: West Virginia 48 Kentucky 33

As expected, Kentucky has their hands full in Morgantown, trailing West Virginia 48-33 at halftime.

The Cats have not handled the Mountaineers’ famous press very well, turning the ball over 11 times, leading to 11 easy points for Bob Huggins’ squad. Kevin Knox is doing his best to keep Kentucky in it, scoring 15 points in the first half. Meanwhile, Jevon Carter — the kid who made fun of the Harrison Twins for playing Nintendo — is having a field day, scoring 18 points so far. With seven threes so far, it feels like the Mountaineers just can’t miss.

I think most of expected this, but can we get a better second half, please?

    Has nothing to do with the press, how many travels and offensive fouls do we have? We turned it over on the press first possession of the game and that was it.

    I’ve said it all year, the Cats can’t shoot or play defense. This squad is going nowhere in March. Don’t say they’re young or that everybody else is losing or that they will figure it out and be fine. They look terrible, even when they win. We’ve had more unforced turnovers than anything else all year.

    However this ends up THIS is the Kevin Knox UK needs and WVU has helped bring it out. He is playing tough gritty basketball and doing a great job of it.

    I believe if UK pulls this out, Bilas will cry. Really starting to detest him.

      I think so too rg. ESPN/Duke powers that be have reeled him in a little. He’s anti UK tonight. I don’t know how he can defend some of the fouling/hacking that West Virginia has been doing all night
