Kentucky Vs. Kansas Score Update: Wildcats Up 14 At Half Of National Championship Game

For the right to trim down the nets in New Orleans, the Kentucky Wildcats hold a 14-point lead at the half on the Kansas Jayhawks, 41-27.

Kansas shot just 33-percent in the first half while the Wildcats' run-and-gun offense was successful on 53-percent of their attempts. Thomas Robinson, who is getting blanketed by a mix of Terrence Jones and Anthony Davis, is shooting only 3-for-11.

Anthony Davis is 0-for-4, but he has game-highs in rebounds (9), assists (4) and blocks (3).

The game was tied at 7-7, but Kentucky went on to outscore the Jayhawks 34-20 the rest of the half, which included a 14-4 run over seven minutes starting at the 10 minute mark.
