Kansas finally breaks the ice on scoring, as no one scored in the first 2 minutes, they get on the board first and Kentucky isn’t far behind with a basket of their own by Olivier Sarr. Kansas with a 3 pointer and Jackson slams it in followed by a free throw to tie up the game, Davion Mintz scores a basket to put the Cats ahead by two, 7-5. BJ Boston with a dunk and now the Cats extend the lead to 6, 11-5 as they went on a 9-0 run and the Jayhawks are struggling as they haven’t scored since their 3 pointer. Another dunk by Boston and free throws by Mintz makes it 15-5. Kansas finally gets out of their scoring funk to get two more baskets, but Kentucky is just ahead, 21-9. Back and forth now between these two, and Kentucky finally gets a 3 pointer from Dontaie Allen. More back and forth but Kentucky seems to maintaining their lead in this one as they lead 32-22 with roughly 3:43 left in the first half. Kansas closes in on Kentucky here down to the wire but Kentucky with free throws and they lead 35-29 at the half.
