Halftime: Murray State 36, Vanderbilt 32

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.
