Jared Sullinger was the recipient of a Spalding tattoo on his chest from a Josh Harrellson fastball, but made 6 first half free throws.
The Kentucky Wildcats and Ohio St. Buckeyes have found themselves in a hot war. The contest is physical and no quarter is being asked, or granted, by either team. This first half was a cage match, and the second half figures to be no different.
Ohio State is making a living at the line, where Kentucky keeps sending them with silly charging fouls and a couple of questionable calls. Five Wildcats have 2 fouls at the half, although Terrence Jones played a long stretch without picking up his third. Josh Harrellson physically dominated Jared Sullinger in the first half in a way I suspect Sullinger is completely unfamiliar with. Brandon Knight has been held in check by Craft, and Darius Miller has made numerous big plays.
Stay tuned, 'Cat fans. If we can keep from fouling out our team, we have a chance in this one.
