UConn vs. Tennessee: Halftime

By Mac Cerullo, Sports Editor

Kemba Walker didn’t score his first point until nearly 15 minutes into the game, but in the last five minutes he came alive, capping off the half with a dramatic buzzer-beating three pointer to take a 32-31 lead going into the half.

Before Walker began to heat up, however, the Huskies supporting cast played well enough to stay in the game but not quite well enough to get a lead. Tennessee lead most of the half, maintaining a 5-6 point cushion for a lot of the time. The Huskies repeatedly made runs before taking the lead themselves towards the end of the half, one of the most notable ones being the charge lead early by Jamal Coombs-McDaniel, who hit back to back three-pointers to cut an early UConn deficit to one.

Tennessee’s talent is showing though, Melvin Goins leads all scorers with 10 points and Scottie Hopson has been making an impact as well with his seven points. Cameron Tatum and Alex Oriakhi have been battling on the boards as well, both lead their respective teams with four rebounds early.

The half ended with a bang, with five lead changes in succession as the half wound to a close. The second half promises to be a good one too, so stay tuned.
