Half and Half (part iii)
Once again I will look at the differences in the 2 halves and the overtime.
First half... Georgia shot 37.5 percent from the field... 13.3 percent from 3-point range and scored just 30 points.
Second half... Georgia shot 51.7 percent from the field... 20.0 percent from 3-point range and scored 35 points.
In the overtime... Georgia shot 80.0 percent from the field (4-5) and 100.0 percent from the 3-point range.
So if you combine the 2nd half and overtime... Georgia shot 55.9 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from 3-point range. Kentucky came into the game allowing opponents to 36.0 field goal pct and 59.2 points per game in 5 conference games.
Other statistics that are pretty drastic are... team rebounds... Kentucky outrebounded Georgia in the first half 19-15, but in the 2nd half and overtime combined the Dawgs outrebounded the Cats 28-12. On defense, Georgia improved there, too. Georgia had just 2 steals in the first half and 7 in the 2nd half and overtime.
Individually I am counting the 2nd half and overtime... I know that means 5 extra minutes, but the numbers are nowhere close.
Takais Brown... first half... 2 points (1-3 FG)... second half and OT... 18 points (9-12 FG)
Sundiata Gaines... first half... 3 points (1-4 FG)... second half and OT... 16 points (5-8 FG)... he also had 0 turnovers in 39 minutes of action.
Terrance Woodbury... first half... 6 points (2-4 FG)... second half and OT... 10 points (4-6 FG)
