Kentucky Vs. North Carolina Score: At Halftime, Wildcats Lead Thanks To Deep Shooting

With John Henson on the bench for the final seven minutes of the half due to foul trouble, the North Carolina Tar Heels kept pace with the Kentucky Wildcats, but trail 38-30 at the break. This has been a sloppy game, with the teams combining for 14 turnovers with about two minutes left.

At one point Harrison Barnes attempted a Kobe Bryant self-pass off the backboard, but couldn’t pull it off. He was also called for a charge, running into Doron Lamb in the paint. Still, he’s put in eight points, UNC’s second-most behind Tyler Zeller’s 11.

With a trip to play UConn in Houston on the line, Carolina’s going to have to slow Brandon Knight and Lamb outside, keep Henson from picking up his fourth foul, and hang on to the basketball.
