UT is not the same team as they were last year, when they handled us with ease. Losing Maymon was a big blow to them and Patric is much improved this year. If I remember correctly, those Maymon and Stokes frustrated the hell out of him and he played poorly. We also have more outside shooting this year. Last year, we were really dependent on Walker and Boynton and if they were cold, we were in trouble.
I'd be suprised if we lost there, but 20 might be pushing it, unless Golden has a terrible game and turns it over 7 or 8 times, which I admit is possible.
I expect Missouri to play very well tonight, there will be 15K plus and it will be the toughest road environment for us this season. I know Rupp has more, but depending on where UK is at performance wise, that crowd may be dispirited. That will not be the case tonight.
