I hate to offer this to the Arkansas Razorbacks, and I know that they are who they are — a running, pressing team. But just so you know, every team that has tried to play that game against Kentucky has lost, and lost huge. I’m not saying you should change who you are, Arkansas. I’m just telling you that, if the first half is any indication, the game plan you brought is failing huge.

There really isn’t much to complain about for a Kentucky fan in that half, it was as good as Kentucky has played all season, shooting 52% from the floor and holding Arkansas to under 30%. When you do that, everything else is pretty much superfluous.
Kentucky just needs to keep it up. I don’t think that Arkansas is going to change their approach to the game, so the Wildcats just need to continue what they are doing. One thing we have not commented enough on is how well Kentucky has guarded the three. There were only about four clean looks for Arkansas in the first half.
Let’s get this done, and get to 34-0. Go, ‘Cats’
