GOG 2011-12 #06: Semester Break

UK enters the between semester break period of the season with the next 4 games coming at home against small conference schools. With no classes to worry about there will be lots of time available for practice and we could really start to see the team begin to mesh over the next couple of weeks heading into the annual big game against Louisville.

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

GOG #6: Chattanooga, Samford, Loyola (MD), Lamar

GOG #7: Louisville

GOG #8: Arkansas-Little Rock

Entries are due by tip-off at 8:00 PM Saturday, December 17.

*I removed question #10 since no one got any part correct due to Jones being injured, this will only affect the GOG Scoring Average for each player.
