Halftime: Baylor 34, Kentucky 29

Click here for the first half box.

Not a good half of basketball on either side, actually, but Baylor did close with a 12-3 run to take a 34-29 lead at intermission. Brady Heslip capped the half with a three-pointer in transition just before the horn to give the Bears a five-point lead.

Kentucky shot 28.6 percent the first half, including hitting just three of 12 from three-point range. Baylor shot 38.7 percent. Each team turned it over 11 times.

Heslip and Corey Jefferson each scored eight points for Baylor. Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress each scored seven for UK, but the Cats are clearly not playing well. Not crisp. Poor execution. Ton of missed shots.
