Kentucky 41, Boise St. 31: Second Half Game Thread

Okay, yeah, his do is weird and ugly. But his first half of basketball was beautiful. - Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The first half could have been better, but it wasn't bad.

You know, there are a lot of things that I didn't like about the first half.  What if James Young had been off instead of on?  What if Boise had made some of the open looks they missed?  Things like that.

But Kentucky competed.  They are playing a very dangerous, skilled, and experienced team, and they have forged a 10-point lead at the half, and they did it by working pretty darn hard on defense.  Yes, they still break off.  Yes, they still run away from shooters.  Yes, they still do dumb things.  But not as often.  That's a good sign.

We need more Randle.  We need more close-in shots.  We need to make Boise St. continue to work hard for every single point.  But make no mistake, this is an improvement so far.  Let's hope we see that continue in the second half.  I love the fact that Kentucky is taking the open three, and that they are still trying to get the ball inside.  That's how you have to do it, and they are doing a very decent job of getting the late transition offense working, particularly the Harrisons.  I love that Calipari is using his bench a lot.  Seems the old coach can learn, too.  Nice to see.

I want more.  I know you do, too.  Let's hope we get it.
