I posted this info in another thread, but thought it was interesting enough to combine the info and post here. Below are some cool stats I threw together about UK's history playing in the GA Dome. Hope you enjoy!
Kentucky is 22-4 all time at the GA Dome
UK’s has averaged 82 PPG since ‘95
Opponents have averaged 68 PPG
UK’s average margin of victory is 16 pts
UK has only played 4 non-SEC games there:
2 games in the Delta Airlines Class in ’96 and late ’98 where it was against GA Tech both times and UK whooped them by around 40 pts each time.
2 games in the 1st and 2nd rounds of the NCAA tourney in ’98, which we won and then proceeded to win the championship. Comeback Cats!!!
But also tonight will be Miller, Lamb, and Jones’ 4th game playing in the GA Dome in the last year. In the three previous SEC tourney games, Miller averaged 13 pts/ 2 rebs, Lamb averaged 13pts/ 2 rebs, and Jones averaged 10pts/ 6 rebs. In all three games Miller and Lamb combined for 31-54 (57.4%) from the field and 10-22 (45.4%) from three.
Make you feel any better about the shooting tonight? After seeing that, I expect to see a big game from all of them. Also, I think the average PPG sounds about right for the final score tonight, so I'm calling UK over IN 82-68. I see the game being very close throughout with UK pulling away in the final 10 minutes. Go CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
