Izzo is not a happy camoer-didn't like the way the game was called
Heh!! You mean he didn't like Winslow's invisible 2nd foul that sent him to the bench in the first half or Cook's invisible 3rd a minute into the second?

Just shut up Tom your team was in over their head and got smoked. Have some class.

I love Kaminsky, but watching him against Towns is like early 80s Eric Fernsten vs Darryl Dawkins.

When in doubt, don't root for Duke
We will hear some Coach Saban level of whining from Coach K if he draws Kentucky in the final.

Wow, every bounce going to Wisconsin right now.  The little kick ball that led to a bucket, the block shot leads to a bucket, etc.  
 
Also, if I'm Kentucky, I'm a little pissed about the officiating thus far.  They are letting them play, but that seems to be a benefit to the Badgers thus far.

deep inside Guido territory
Wisconsin is following the plan to a T. Using the bigs in some swing offense and in pick and roll to get UK on the run. Making shots. Using Hayes as a chess piece. Now can't get the bigs in foul trouble.

Another block shot goes right back into the hands of the Wisconsin shooter.  Leads to a foul, going to the line.

His drop step might be McHale level.  He still needs another 4,421 moves to actually be as good as McHale though.

Kentucky will still win this game by double digits. They're struggling quite a bit yet down only one possession.
They're not struggling that much, they are shooting 61%.

If you took away the points on "broken plays" and loose balls, Kentucky is winning this game by double digits.  Wisconsin winning with hustle, sprinkled with a bit of luck right now.

Or not.  If the Badgers aren't careful, they could be down 4-5 going into the half, which would be an awful result for them considering how well they played this half.

Koenig can't hit that reverse to save his life.  He's feeling the trees.
 
That was a horrible miss. Chances like that inside against KY are rare.

Careful enough?

Wow.  Monster way to finish the half by Koenig.  I don't think you can underestimate the mental effect a lead vs. a deficit would have had there.

I'm coming in late. Is this some new thing where they have the color guy openly root for one team? Seems like this color guy is pro Kentucky. Am I missing something?

Yeah.  You have to respect their shot blockers, but you can't let them get in your head if that's what happened.

You are watching that team's feed. TBS has the neutral call.

Shooting 60% and being tied at half doesn't bode well for the second half
