edit- Changed title to avoid confusion with halftime shows.
The Nebraska game is the halfway point for the 2012/2013 regular season (if you count Slippery Rock), so lets take a look at the season so far.

First Half MVP:
Trey Burke - 18.2 PTS, 7.5 AST, 1.9 TO, 55% FG, 41% 3PT, 1.3 STL
Big Ten POY and National POY candidate.
First Half 6th Man:
Mitch McGary - 15.3 MIN, 6.1 REB, 5.5 PTS, 1.1 TO
He has been very impressive as of late, especially when he gets hit in the nose.
I'm going to go with two guys in this category for different reasons.
Nik Stauskas - 29.7 MIN, 54% 3PT, 51% FG, 89% FT, 1.1 TO
We knew he could shoot coming in, but THIS BOY CAN FLAT OUT SHOOT!
Caris LeVert - 14.1 MIN, 47% 3PT, .20 TO, 4.1 PTS
His stats don't jump off the page, but he has really impressed me for a guy that was projected to redshirt.
Stuntin Like My Daddy:
Tim Hardaway Jr - 32.8 MIN, 49% FG, 5.0 REB, 2.9 AST, 16.4 PTS
Glenn Robinson III - 31.0 MIN, 59% FG, 6.1 REB, 12.5 PTS
These guys know how to dunk.
