Kentucky vs. Tennessee (Second Half Comment Thread)

Screen Shot 2016-02-18 at 7.05.56 PM

Kentucky leads Tennessee 36-30, but I doubt I’m alone when I say that first half was pretty meh. Let’s circle the wagons and hope for a more lively second half, shall we?

Something to keep an eye on: Derek Willis was limping slightly at the end of the first half, and that limp is apparently more noticeable in second half warmups…

    For those who lack the capability to smell, it smells a lot like the first half but a few minutes later.

  74. millertime98
    8:34 pm February 18, 2016 Permalink

    every single year they talk about “cleaning up” the game by calling hand checking and physical play down low. If they really want to make the game better they’ll stop calling fouls initiated by the offense. Running into a defender who is standing still and throwing up a wild shot or dribbiling into a guy just to create contact is not basketball. Offensive flopping is killing it…but I digress

    One of the most underrated aspects of Derek Willis’ game is his desire to wear the proper equipment and follow the rules. He has also been throwing the ball at the basket good.
