UK vs. Illinois State (Second Half Comment Thread)

illinoisstateheader

Well, that was ugly. Without Tyler Ulis, Kentucky looked totally lost on both sides of the floor, trailing Illinois State for the majority of the first half. The score is tied at 31 at halftime, and if Skal Labissiere and Jamal Murray don’t show up, it could get ugly.

You know the drill, leave comments below to discuss the game. Feel free to ask us any questions about basketball or life as well.

      If I remember correctly, the press section is over in a corner by itself. Not too bad. Honestly, that place is so small it doesn’t matter. Almost every seat is decent.

    I nearly lost all control of my bodily functions when Alex dove for that ball out of bounds and started to grab his leg/knee.
