UK gets off to a fast start. Kevin Knox with a dunk and Quade Green hits 2 3’s.  UK leads 13-6 at the first TV timeout with 15;39 to go in the half.

Thomas More was tough.  After they hit 2 3’s in a row, the second by Austin Young. Cal, who said he was going to yell less, wants time.  The media is now sitting in the upper deck, there has been a number of times I’ve heard Cal all the way up here.  It’s 25-17 UK.

UK’s obvious size advantage hurt Thomas More.

UK is shooting 50% at the half.  Thomas More is at 23%.

Kevin Knox leads everyone with 14 points. 

Both teams are shooting only 25% from downtown at the half.

There was nothing Thomas More could do to stop Kevin Knox.  The super freshman finishes with 27 points.
