GOG 2010-11 #15: LSU

LSU waltzes into Rupp Arena with a 2-0 league mark and ahead of UK in the standings.  I think Beyond the Arc's Rob Dauster put it best:

4:00 pm: LSU @ No. 15 Kentucky: LSU has a better record in the SEC than Kentucky does. Enjoy it while it lasts.

I fully expect Tiger fans to blame Les Miles for a loss in this game.

GOG 2010-11 #15: LSU [Max 30 Points]

  1. Who wins the game? [ +/- 1 point] UK
  2. How many points does UK score? [4/3/2/1 point] 82
  3. How many points does LSU score? [4/3/2/1 point]44
  4. Over at CBSSports, you can view shot charts for some games which give both the floor position and the distance for each shot.  What is the distance (in feet) of the longest made field goal for UK in the game and who is the player who makes it? [3 points each] 29 feet by Knight
  5. Calipari has taken a personal interest in the development of Vargas, Hood, Poole, and Polson, a group that I shall hereafter refer to collectively as VaHooPP.  Predict VaHooPP's (collective) minutes/FG attempts/FT attempts for the game. [2 points each] 41/10/0
  6. Storm Warren does a little bit of everything for the Tigers.  Predict his rebounds/blocks/steals. [2 points each] 1/2/0
  7. LSU has struggled on offense, having failed to break the 1 point per possession (ppp) barrier in their last 6 games.  Does that streak run to 7 games against the Cats? [ +/- 1 point] yes
  8. On the other side of the court LSU has held both its SEC opponents to under .85 ppp to start conference play.  Does the UK offense score 1 ppp or better? [ +/- 1 point] yes
  9. LSU has also been very stingy in the first half of each game, allowing 6 points to Auburn and 17 to Arkansas.  Does UK score 28 points or more in the first half? [ +/- 1 point] yes
  10. Bonus: There are 5 SEC contests on Saturday.  What is the combined point total for the teams in action?  The closest guess will get 2 points and everyone within 30 points of the answer will get 1 point. Total points scored was 707.  BigSkyCat was closest.
