We must protect this house!
Despite some very impatient and inefficient offense by Kentucky in the first half and a couple of very questionable foul calls, the Wildcats find themselves down only 5 points. North Carolina shot an uncharacteristic percentage from three, and despite all that, they have failed to put significant distance between themselves and Kentucky.
The second half will tell, and with Harrison Barnes having three fouls, it will require UNC to be careful. Kentucky has a few foul problems of their own, but nobody with three right now.
Here we go, ladies and gents. Down the stretch they come!
