UK 96 Ole Miss 78

Posted: Updated:

Crazy start. At 18:43 of the first half, Marcanvis Hymon of Ole Miss gets a technical. 

Then at 16:36, Nick Richards gets one, on a play that didn't look that bad, but you wonder if the refs were concerned about this game getting to physical to soon.  The officials took a long time after the technical on Richards. 

The end result was Hyman was ejected from the game because he gets a dead ball technical.  Two and you are tossed. Hyman plays only 1:43. After all the free throws, UK leads 12-7.

With 5:37 gone in the first half, we now have four techical fouls.  Three on Ole Miss.  This time it's Justas Furnanavicius, a 6-7 senior forward.

UK was having trouble shooting until Knox hits a three and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with a terrific drive with his left hand.  That wakes up the crowd and UK goes up 29-25. Shai already has 11 points.

Congrats to the UK cheerleaders.  They are brought to center court during a TV timeout wearing their US Olympic jackets.
