GOG 2011-12 #02: Thanksgiving Week

The Cats have a busy schedule over the next 7 days as they will play 4 games. Penn St is up first in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off, followed by the winner of Old Dominion/South Florida. Technically, I suppose UK could play the "loser" of ODU/SF, but I don't think that is very likely.

Here's a fun nugget: Wednesday's game against Radford is also part of the Hall of Fame Tip Off, but it is being played *after* the event is over. I don't pretend to understand these things.

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

GOG #2: Penn St, ODU/SF, Radford, Portland

GOG #3: St. Johns, UNC (these might get split into their own GOGs)

GOG #4: Indiana

GOG #5: Chattanooga, Samford, Loyola, Lamar

GOG #6: Louisville

Entries are due by tip-off of the Penn St game, at 12:00 PM Saturday.

  14. Radford was not very good last year, they might be better this year (they have a non-conference win over a D1 team which is one more than they had all of last year) but it's certainly too early to tell. They have been pretty good at guarding the 3 though. What is UK's shooting percentage on 3's against them? Answers within 3 percentage points will be counted correct [4 points] 33.3%
  15. The Portland game is a return game from last season which in turn was a home game for Terrence Jones since he was only expected to be around for 1 year. You can see the box score for last year's game here. Looking at Terrence's line, there are 22 different boxes (everything from Minutes Played through Personal Fouls). How many of these categories does TJ improve on this year? To be clear: how many boxes does Jones have a better number (meaning a higher number in most cases, but smaller when it comes to personal fouls and turnovers) than he did last year? [5 points] 13
