What’s the best way to spend a Saturday afternoon in February? How about national television against a blue blood?

NCAA Basketball: Georgia at Missouri Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

I mentioned in the preview, Mizzou is 0-10 all time against Kentucky. Today would be a good day to break the streak.

I did plenty of previewing of the Wildcats in yesterday’s post, so read that (links are below). In the meantime, just a few days ago things looked bleak for the remainder of the season. Then the Tigers left Tuscaloosa the victors and suddenly hope springs eternal.

Get a win today against Kentucky and the ship is righted. You’re 5-5 with enough of an easier schedule ahead of you an NCAA tournament bid would seem inevitable. Lose, and there is a lot of work to be done. Let’s get to it.

Five Questions

  1. Kevin Knox was almost a Tiger. What’s his line in Mizzou Arena?
  2. Kentucky blocks shots, and Mizzou gets their shot blocked. How many blocks does UK get?
  3. What is Missouri’s 3-point shooting percentage?
  4. (not a question but...) Predict the score!
  5. Who is your trifecta?
