NCAA Tournament Scores: Kentucky Destroying Baylor 42-22 At Halftime

This is not really a contest. Sorry to all of the Baylor Bears fans and to people who just wanted to see a close-fought basketball game. The Kentucky Wildcats are beating the tar out of Baylor and have benched their best player for the last four minutes of the first half so he didn't pick up a third foul. Scott Drew's team just has nothing for UK, who leads 42-22 at the half.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has 17 points while Anthony Davis has 14, six rebounds and two blocks. Two of those points came on this ridiculous alien-like layup where he quite literally comes out of nowhere.

Kidd-Gilchrist has been downright dominant for Kentucky. Those 17 points have come on 6-7 shooting and 4-4 shooting from the free throw line. Baylor seem to be a bit more worried about Terrence Jones, which has freed up Kidd-Gilchrist and allowed Jones to dish out six assists.

Baylor is shooting 32 percent from the floor and Perry Jones has just two points. Quincy Acy is the only Baylor player who has had any noticeable impact on the game. This is a straight-up beatdown, and unless Baylor can start hitting threes out of nowhere while UK misses layups, there's not going to be a comeback.
