GOG 2011-12 #03: St. Johns

Kentucky and St. John's open the SEC-Big East Invitational this season in a game that looked a lot better before the Red Storm lost several members of their recruiting class to eligibility issues. Kentucky looks to see if it can hang on to a shiny new #1 ranking for more than a single game, something the 2010 squad was unable to do.

Tentative Upcoming GOG Schedule (to help you plan your GOGness):

GOG #3: St. Johns


GOG #5: Indiana

GOG #6: Chattanooga, Samford, Loyola, Lamar

GOG #7: Louisville
