The Cavaliers come into this game putting up an average of 72.1 points a game this season. But a Bruce Brown turnover forced the Wildcats to foul and send the Anteaters to the line. Throughout the first half, the Wildcats shot 35.7 percent (10-of-28) from the field and 28.5 percent (4-of-14) from long range, as the Anteaters knocked down a buzzer-beater before the half, as the score was knotted at 30-30 at the break. De'Andre Hunter puts up a team-leading 15.2 points, five rebounds plus 2.1 assists: he is the team's second-leading scorer.
