Phew, what a half. Kentucky is without De’Aaron Fox today and can’t seem to make a bucket, but somehow, they’re tied with Florida at half 28-28. Malik Monk and Isaiah Briscoe were on the bench a good portion of the half with two fouls, but Dominique Hawkins (3 points, 5 rebounds) and Bam Adebayo (6 points, 11 rebounds) have been playing their hearts out. For the first time in what seems like too long, Kentucky looks like a team that cares. Let’s hope that stays the same when Monk and Briscoe come back in during the second half.
