Terrific start by UK.  Nick Richards gets his third offensive rebound on the play and then throws down a powerful dunk.  That makes it 4-2 UK, but Richards gets a technical because he screamed at Bryce Aiken of Harvard.  Aiken hits the free throw.  UK leads 4-3.

That dunk by Richards got the crowd going.  The energy was terrific, plus this team is passing the ball better and running more. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with a great pass to Sacha Killeya-Jones who dunks.  UK leads 15-7.

Cal wasn't happy and calls a timeout with UK leading 22-18.  Harvard who is a poor shooting team from downtown has hit 4 of 10 to keep them close.

Great passing by UK.  During the fast break Quade Green throws it to Hamidou Diallo.  Green keeps on running to the basket and Hamidou gives it right back to him for an easy layup.  This isn't the kind of play Kentucky was doing earlier in the season.  UK leads 30-23.

Kevin Knox had a terrific half.  He leads with 16.  Hamidou Diallo has 11. 

UK has hit 12 of 13 free throws for 92%.

UK is 14 of 28 from the field for 50%.

Hamidou Diallo starts the second half the right way.  Drives baseline an dunks.  UK leads 44-38.

The fire alarm goes off.  UK fans, as only they can start cheering Go Big Blue. 

Then Cal gets a Technical.  Shortly after that, Tony Delk, who was great in the 1996 NCAA National Championship gets a huge welcome doing the Y in the UK cheer.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with a great feed to Nick Richards for the big dunk. UK leads 57-50. 

UK goes on a 13-0 run to end the game in the second half.  UK wins 79-70.

Kevin Knox had 20 and Hamidou Diallo had 19.
