Georgia leads Kentucky 35-34 at Halftime

Due to some technical difficulties I was unable to see the majority of the first half. From what I’ve seen, this is what I’ve got:

– UK’s defense has been horrible.  Calipari talked about how his Camp Cal-inspired three-a-days were designed to toughen up UK on the defensive end, but so far that seems like it’s not working out as he planned.  Georgia’s shooting 50 percent (3-of-6) from behind the three-point line, and 44 percent (12-of-27) from the field.  Travis Lee is their only player if double figures (12), but they have two more (Trey Thompkins and Ricky McPhee each have eight) who are a field goal away.

– UK’s offense hasn’t been much better.  We’ve yet to hit a three so far (0-for-8) and our free throw shooting’s been brutal (10-for-18).  From the field, Kentucky’s at 40 percent (12-for-30).

– Kentucky’s being out-rebounded (23-21), but is winning the turnover war (7-13).  Wall already has three giveaways for Kentucky in the early going.

– Offensively, Patterson and Wall lead the way for the Cats with eight apiece, while Cousins and Orton each have four rebounds to pace Kentucky.

– Something to watch in the second half is Georgia’s foul situation.  They’ve already committed 13 as a team.

We’ll have more after the game including a full recap and analysis.  Go Cats!
