Halftime: Kentucky 32, Cornell 16

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- What were your thoughts when Cornell opened up a 10-2 lead? Well, mine were that this is a good start but it almost seemed surreal. Jeff Foote was playing well by controlling the early post play. Ryan Wittman hit a 3-pointer. All looked good.

Until DeMarcus Cousins started to re-assert control of the post and the pressure got amped up to another level as the Wildcats started to force turnovers.
