Here we are, down to another Texas team at the half. To be fair, Texas A&M has played about as well as they possibly can, keeping the tempo right where they want it. Elston Turner has been unconscious from everywhere, and has 25 points at the half. The bad news for TAMU is that the rest of the team only has 11.
This, quite frankly, was a case of Kentucky simply failing to fire for much of the first half. Kentucky only has 5 turnovers, but Archie Goodwin has 3 of them. Goodwin is playing with abject futility, but to his credit, he keeps attacking and attacking. He only knows one way to play, and that's balls-to-the-wall.
Another problem area has been, no surprise, rebounding. Kentucky is struggling on both the defensive and offensive glass, and getting pushed around a lot underneath.
The 'Cats must come back in this half and speed up the game, force the Aggies into challenged shots, and shoot the ball better. 44% won't get it done.
