Louisville refusing to fold at half

Second-seeded Tennessee has done a nice job of getting back into the game after trailing Louisville 24-8 early on. The Vols are down 37-30 at halftime, but still haven't come close to hitting full stride.

Tennessee shot 35.7 percent (10 of 28) in the first half, including 22.2 percent (2 of 9) on three-pointers. The Volunteers were outrebounded 23-15.

A better second half is critical if Tennessee is to keep alive its national title hopes. Remember, not long ago, the Vols were rated No. 1 in the country.
