Assembly Hall Bloomington, Ind.

This is a big game for Kentucky, as all rivalries are. For once, Calipari is playing a team where he is actually friends with the coach instead of rivals. But the two programs are big rivals, and this is a rivalry game.

More after the jump.

To win this game, UK must:

  • Play better defense from the perimeter.
  • Get everyone involved in the game.
  • Beat the Hoosiers on the offensive glass.
  • Get the ball inside.

IU's keys to victory are:

  • Get back on defense.
  • Get defensive rebounds.
  • Attack the UK big men.
  • Avoid turnovers.

This game is a tradition that goes back a long way. UK needs to prove that it is improving, and I consider the last game a sideways effort. We need more, and hopefully, the young, restless Wildcats will deliver.

Go, 'Cats!
