UK welcomes the Hoosiers to Rupp Arena Saturday. Incredibly, this marks just the 3rd true home game for the Cats so far this season as the the non-conference schedule was front loaded with neutral and road games. Indiana comes in with a nice record, due entirely to home games against low major teams. The only time the Hoosiers have been on the road this season they lost to a Boston College team that itself lost at home to Yale.
This is the 54th game against the Hoosiers. UK is 30-23 against the northern neighbors.

Explanation for #8: Basically I'm asking you to balance two things: you need to pick a player you think will hit a 3, but who also will be the one with the lowest 3PT FG% for the season (entering the game) among all UK players who hit a three. So, for example: If Jones and Miller are the only two players to hit a 3, then Jones is the correct answer because his 3P% is lower than Miller's is. If Miller, Jones, and Hood each hit a 3, then Hood is the answer because he has the lowest 3P% of that group. I hope that makes sense. Note that Vargas is the only player who doesn't qualify for this question as he has yet to attempt a 3 this season.
Deadline for entries is tip-off 5:15 PM Saturday, December 11.
