Here's a pretty interesting stat to note from Kentucky's 39-13 halftime lead on Abilene Christian. The 13 points are the fewest Kentucky has given up in a half in NCAA tournament history. https://t.co/XAmizrkZgm
@awstar11 My alma mater, Abilene Christian, is in our FIRST EVER "Big Dance"...and losing to Univ of Kentucky, 39-13, at the half, thereby making this a rotten time for me to watch my first college basketball game ever.
Enjoying watching my lifelong favorite college bb team (University of Kentucky) and my alma mater playing in the NCAA tournament leading 39-13 at the half. Go Cats!! Also why I would like the Raiders pick 1-2 UK players (Allen for one). Yeah I’m a homey.

Kentucky jumped out to an 8-0 lead and has never looked back in the opening game of the NCAA Tournament, leading the Abilene Christian Wildcats at half, 39-13.
Abilene Christian has a 27-6 record but, thus far, is little match to their much larger, faster Wildcat brothers.
Kentucky cruises into the half up by 26. ACU 19 FG% - UK 60 FG%
Herro (14) and Johnson (10) are UK's only double digit scorers with Reid Travis close behind with 8. EJ Montgomery has 6 rebounds to lead the Cats.

I'm very impressed with how the Kentucky Wildcats are playing so far. 39-13 at halftime. I hope this team keeps up the great work in the second half. #UKvsACU #GoBigBlue #LetsGoCats #KentuckyWildcats #NCAATournament #MarchMadness
