Kentucky 28, Florida 49: Second Half Live Thread

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Oh, the humanity.

Kentucky picked a really interesting time to play the worst half of basketball they have played all year. I guess it was predictable given how badly they have played lately, and I must confess to a lack of surprise to find Kentucky down 21 points at the half. The team is playing exactly as they have for the past four weeks, and show no sign whatever of turning anything around. Turnovers, and inability to get clean looks, and a complete failure to defend Florida's shooters are the primary hallmarks of this nasty mess.

First half box score

All I can say is that 11 turnovers and allowing 7 made 3's are a recipe for a blowout.

About the best that the Wildcats are likely to be able to hope for is to make a game out of it in the second half. If we are honest with ourselves, we have to understand that the Wildcats are not going to win this game. It is pretty much a foregone conclusion that Kentucky, who hasn't executed well offensively or defensively in over 30 days isn't going to come back from a 21-point deficit against a Florida team that is executing sharply, perhaps the best they have all year. You see that a lot on senior days when there are a bunch of senior starters on a team.

Well, now for the second half. I have no idea what to expect, but if it's anything like the first half, it sure is going to be a long 20 minues.
