    Something to look for today: Notice how many charges that UK players take. The answer will be 0 because the players are not being coached to take charges because there are very few charges taken in the NBA. Notice how many charging calls UK has taken this year. I look for Arkansas to take several charges.

      One thing for sure. If we win this game you’ll be nowhere to be found. And if you do show up after the win, it will be to complain about something..but if we lose you’ll be running your mouth for sure
