NU lead 30-28 at the half in Tulsa

Good news is that NU got this lead despite both Thompson and Moore sitting the last 10 minutes of the half after picking up two fouls each. Mirkovic also hit a bomb, as did Shurna.

Bad news is that Tulsa's Jordan is having his way inside and Tulsa is getting o-boards like they're a poor man's MSU (no big coincidence given NU's lack of rebounding skills, Wojcik's learning from Izzo). Also, NU tends to play worse with the lead at half for whatever reason.

What kept NU in this was cold shooting from distance from Tulsa. Uzoh only knocked down one bomb by my count, and their sharp shooter had one, too. Will this continue? Will Thompson and Moore picked up where they left off with NU clicking while they were in? Let's hope so.
