The surging Wildcats come into Tuscaloosa for a pivotal game (at least for us).
Meeks comes in leading the world in scoring... OK, he's tops in the SEC (26.3) with Patterson (18.0) being a more than able supporting cast member. Who's gonna stop them?
I'm going to give some different stats than I normally do:
- 75.3 PPG (3rd SEC)
- 50% FG (1st)
- 82.5% FT (1st)
- 6.8 blocks (1st)
- 13.8 assists (3rd)
57% of their offense comes from Meeks and Patterson. If we could somehow shut down one of them we could pull the upset. I think we have a better chance shutting down Meeks... I don't see anyone on our team capable of handling Patterson down low.
Prediction: I think we hang tough with them. If the team isn't jacked about this game there is something wrong with them. In the end though, Kentucky creates a bunch of turnovers and pulls away late. Cats by 13.
