Halftime: Murray State 36, Vanderbilt 32
By Diamond Leung
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Quick halftime thoughts from what's been an evenly-matched game as expected.
It's a good thing Murray State has B.J. Jenkins healthy after he cut an index finger while cutting down the net. The junior guard has nine points to lead the Racers.
Vanderbilt continues to do well in getting to the free throw line, but has only made 8 of 15 foul shots. Jeffery Taylor leads the Commodores with nine points, but could have had more as he's 3 of 7 from the line.
A.J. Ogilvy, Vanderbilt's 6-foot-11 center, has played only five minutes and has two points after picking up two fouls.
Vanderbilt has eight points from their usual leading scorer Jermaine Beal. Freshman John Jenkins continues to start alongside him in the backcourt.
