The Wildcats are definitely warmed up tonight as they lead the #7 Florida Gators at the half 38-36. Michael Kidd- Gilchrist is leading the way for Kentucky with 10 points and 9 rebounds. Doron Lamb also has 10 points and has hit two of three three pointers. So far, Kentucky has mostly negated Florida’s 3-point attack, holding them to 2-9 shooting from long range and 33% shooting overall. The Wildcats are hitting 51.7% and 4-8 from beyond the three point arc. Kentucky’s defense has rattled Florida in the first half, forcing 8 turnovers.
So far, so good for the first 20 minutes. Jason will be around after the game with his wrapup.
