I don't think any Kentucky fan can be disappointed by what they saw in the first half. Kentucky defended, they shot the ball well, and are starting to get a handle on the fast break. In other words, all we can ask after a disappointing loss to Michigan St. last week.
Willie Cauley-Stein may only have 4 points, but he has done everything else, with 9 rebounds and 3 blocks. Aaron Harrison is also having an excellent game, as is James Young. this team, right now, is giving us exactly what we needed to see this game. It doesn't hurt a bit that we are beating up on a team that knocked us out of the NIT last season.
Here are your stats, and a couple of random tweets:
I think the loss to Michigan State gave this UK team something to think about. Response: UK 44, RMU 20 at half.— Oscar Combs (@wildcatnews) November 18, 2013
And a bit of sad news. Our prayers go out to the Dean family.
Joe Dean, he of "String Music" fame, passes away. http://t.co/dVIXOPf1Lr— Larry Glover (@larrygloverlive) November 18, 2013
Enjoy the second half. It should be fun.
