Florida International Game Thread and Predictions

Before the football Cats hit the field in Nashville, the less heralded UK team (ever thought you would say that) try to rebound at Rupp Arena against Florida International and their greatest alumni, Carlos Arroyo (insert laugh track here).  I am not sure if you can call any game the Cats play a MUST-WIN anymore because that implies they need this for their NCAA resume, and frankly they are in too deep a hole to worry about that.  You should more be concerned with this game being a MUST-PLAY BETTER game.  It’s not just the losing, its the looking confused and uninterested that has become the norm for this team.  This FIU Panthers team would be a perfect start.  They have lost to Robert Morris by 27, George Mason by 18 and Florida Gulf Coast by 3.  They have no one shooting over 40% on 3-pointers and only 2 guys that are averaging over 10 points a game.  Neither of those guys are guards, which is also a positive as guards have killed the Cats so far.  Watch out for Alex Galindo (Kansas transfer), 6’6” and athletic.  If he goes all Jordan Crawford or Robert Vaden on UK, this game could get close.  You never know who is going to play what amount on this Kentucky team, but hopefully we will see more Jodie Meeks for both halves, a little more Derrick Jasper, and some type of production from Perry Stevenson/Jared Carter.  I will say it now: if the Cats lose to FIU, it will be a worse loss than both Gardner-Webb or San Diego.  But, thats not gonna happen, Cats win this one fairly easily: UK 75, FIU 59.  Use this thread to put down your prediction…(Thread for the football game will come shortly after the bball game ends)
