“To get a mediocre group to play together and become a good team, there’s a bunch of coaches (who could do that),” Calipari said last week. “And I’m not saying this in regards to me but to get the allstars, like Phil Jackson would do, to play triangle offense, defend together, communicate together and have Breakfast Club together, that’s the challenge of what we

team had questions about its depth, all the way How much of from the start of UK’s total team the season to the shots are end of it. Doron Not this team, accounted for Lamb though. Lack of by individual depth hasn’t been players? an issue at all, despite only going seven-ish players deep. That’s largely because the Michael top six are collectively at a different, and Kidd-Gilchrist equivalent, level. “This year’s team isn’t that deep, but they’re deep enough,” Calipari said. Can the pace be sustained? It will be tough. Miller or Teague could easily be averaging 9.9 after playing LSU. Terrence But that’s the thing about round numJones bers. If either is averaging 9.9 points after Saturday, these concepts about the team sharing the ball don’t dissipate. It just means we won’t be able to spout the “six UK players are scoring in Anthony double figures” stat anymore. Davis Until they’re back above the magical round-number line.

do.” It’s a process, he said, that starts when he’s recruiting the future All-Americans. In the living room, when the realities of having to earn your time and your shots still seem far away, honesty is paramount. Calipari said he asks recruits if they want to win a national title. Then he asks whether they can do it alone. The answer is vital; can players accustomed to being “The Man” subjugate their want for offthe-charts stats? On this year’s team, it appears that answer has been “yes.” “I love sharing the basketball with these guys,” Michael Kidd-Gilchrist said. “We’re like brothers.” Having this many players performing at that high level creates depth, but not in the traditional sense of the word. Usually, teams with “depth” go eight or nine competent players deep. This team goes with its six heavy contributors and Kyle Wiltjer rounding out whatever’s left. The team’s structure isn’t that different, on the surface, from last year’s. It had six heavy contributors and then Eloy Vargas rounding out whatever was left. That

21.2 percent (Lamb). “That means that we have an unselfish team that’ll pass to each other,” UK head coach John Calipari said. Calipari sees the challenge of getting multiple great players to play together, rather than getting multiple good players and making them great, as the more difficult task.

Anthony Davis

Round numbers make things more complete, more understandable, even if they are an illusion. The (actual) difference between someone scoring 10 points per game and 9.9 points per game is negligible, even though the (perceived) difference is vast. Which is why now is the time to write about UK’s offensive balance. The numbers AARON have aligned. SMITH Six players are avKernel eraging 10 points or columnist more per game. Just a game ago, Darius Miller was averaging 9.9. Marquis Teague is currently right at 10.0 and could slip under in the next game. But right now, in this stretch between one game and the next, all six are at or above the magically rounded 10-point mark. It’s a historic rate of scoring distribution. No other team in the NCAA has six players averaging in double digits, and UK itself has never finished a season with that many players scoring 10 or more points per game. Any form of measurement showcases UK’s offensive balance. The top six have taken between 160 shots (Miller) and 196 shots (Doron Lamb). Their shot percentage — the percentage of the team’s shot a player takes when he’s on the floor — all reside between 18 percent (Davis) and

UK Hoops capitalized on turnovers to defeat the Auburn Tigers Thursday night in Auburn, Ala., 66-48. The No. 6 Cats moved to 8-0 in the SEC, a program-record start. They have also won a school-record 11 consecutive regular-season conference games and six consecutive road conference games. The Cats fell behind early 16-11, but reeled off a 18-0 run and went into the locker room up 31-20. The Tigers closed to within seven early in the second half at 33-26, but the Cats answered with an 11-0 run. The Tigers never got within single-digits again. “We have a very good basketball team. They played with a lot of confidence and poise tonight,” said UK head coach Matthew Mitchell in the UK/IMG postgame radio show. Auburn turned the ball over 30 times, leading to 38 points off turnovers for the Cats. A’dia Mathies scored a career-low two points against the Florida Gators on Sunday, but bounced back Thursday night, leading the Cats in scoring with 20 points. She also contributed four rebounds, three assists and a steal. The Cats won the rebounding battle 37-35, thanks largely to sophomore forward Samarie Walker’s career-high 15 boards. “It was a really good performance by Samarie tonight,” Mitchell said. Sophomore Maegan Conwright added 10 points for the Cats, connecting on five of her six shots from the field. “This was clearly her (Conwright’s) best game of the year tonight,” Mitchell said. The Cats (19-2, 8-0 SEC) return to Memorial Coliseum Sunday to play the Alabama Crimson Tide (10-11, 0-7 SEC) at 2 p.m. Reserved seat tickets for the game, which will be broadcast on Comcast/Charter Sports South, are sold out. Based upon availability, UK students, faculty and staff will be admitted free. UK Hoops will celebrate Alumni Day by recognizing the 1981-82 team at halftime. That squad earned UK’s first SEC championship and first appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Behind enemy lines A look at the other team’s likely starting lineup. LSU Tigers SEC 12-8, 2-4 SEC Head coach: Trent Johnson

No. 41 Justin Hamilton Center 7 foot 260 pounds 13.9 ppg 7.4 rpg

No. 10 Andre Stringer Guard 5-foot-9 178 pounds 10.8 ppg 2.3 rpg

No. 1 Anthony Hickey Guard 5-foot-11 182 pounds 10.0 ppg 3.8 rpg

No. 22 Ralston Turner Guard 6-foot-6 205 pounds 8.9 ppg 2.6 rpg

No. 24 Storm Warren Forward 6-foot-7 230 pounds 8.1 ppg 5.1 rpg

3 things to watch: UK at LSU edition 1. It won’t be LeBron on the floor, right? LSU coach Trent Johnson had this to say when assessing Saturday’s opponent: “I don’t know if it’s Kentucky or the Miami Heat we have to play.” According to the schedule, it’s Kentucky, although Johnson’s remark pretty much sums up how opponents view UK. It has a talent, athleticism and size advantage over everyone else. AARON If UK can continue its gradual SMITH improvement and improve to 5-0 on the road, UK will retain its No. Kernel columnist 1 ranking. And no pre-game chalk toss needed. 2. Offensive output Two of UK’s five least-efficient games came on the road in the SEC, against Auburn and Georgia (the others: Louisville, Kansas and Old Dominion). And LSU won’t be much easier than the other SEC opponents. The Tigers rank third in the SEC in scoring defense (61.5 points per game) and fourth in field goal percentage defense (40 percent). UK stalled against Georgia in the second half, scoring 19 points. It doesn’t want that to happen again — although even if it does, UK might be fine anyway. LSU is another good-defense, bad-offense team, the type that UK has seemingly encountered in every conference game to this point. The Tigers shoot just 40.6 percent on offense and don’t get to the free-throw line often. They take care of the basketball, ranking second in the SEC in turnover margin (plus-2.95), so it won’t be easy for UK to push the pace off turnovers. Given UK’s high-quality defense, this could be another relatively low-scoring game. 3. Post play If there’s one player who could give UK trouble, it will be Justin Hamilton. The 6-foot-11 center leads the team in scoring (13.9 points per game) and rebounds (7.4 per game). UK just came off beating Georgia, a severely undersized team with no true interior presence. LSU has one, and the onus will fall on Anthony Davis to match his physicality. It’s another good test for Davis as he continues to improve his play in the paint. 01.27.12 | weekend timeout | 5

Chesney gets 9 CMA nods Jennifer Abreu features@kykernel.com Islam has a different meaning for everyone. It might be something that is not accurate or truthful about the faith. The Muslim Student Association at UK brought speaker Abdel Rahman Murphy to speak about the misconceptions of Islam on Thursday night at the Student Center. Murphy touched on the most popular misconceptions about the faith and gave specific examples of how both Muslims and non-Muslims can help eliminate them. “You should not judge a faith by its practitioner,” Murphy said. The event was held in the Grand Ballroom, where dinner was served as well, and the MSA had a full house. There were first-generation Muslims wearing their traditional hijabs and kufis accompa-

nied by daughters and sons who had a more “Americanized” style, as well as non-Muslims. The speaker started out by welcoming the crowd with a traditional Arabic phrase “As-Salāmu `Alaykum,” translating to “May peace be upon you.” “This speech should no longer be given. It’s tired, it’s old. The fact that we have to have a discussion about misconception in a country like America is saddening,” Murphy said. Murphy said he did not only want to inform everyone present about Islam, but he also wished to transform the way they viewed it. “I hope that everyone in here today can learn something and pass it on to others who need the enlightenment,” Murphy said. Murphy recommended reading the Quran and “The Life of Muhammad” as the best ways to learn a clean, unbiased Islam. Read a full story online.

LOS ANGELES — Kenny Chesney has come roaring back in terms of industry recognition with a field-dominating nine nominations for this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards. The runner-up for most nods was Jason Aldean, who collected six, ahead of Lady Antebellum with five, Brad Paisley with four and Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Grace Potter and the Eli Young Band with three apiece, academy officials announced Thursday. Newer-vintage performers such as Miranda Lambert and Zac Brown scored the most nominations last year, but Chesney this year is up for entertainer of the year, male vocalist and song of the year, plus double dips under the ACM’s rules recognizing performers who also are producers, for his album “Hemingway’s Whiskey,” his hit single (with Grace Potter) “You and Tequila” and vocal event for the same song.

Gaming: ‘Mass Effect 3’ could be good or bad “Mass Effect 3” may be the best or the worst game of 2012. Here’s why.

What might go bad: 1. “Mass Effect 2” was not as good in comparison to the first installment in the series. Yes, it allowed players KAYLA to become adjusted to the PICKRELL storyline with a comic book-type introduction Kernel columnist (only for Play Station 3) of the original “Mass Effect,” but the storyline didn’t improve very much for any console

(similar to any trilogy). There were also glitches in the software. 2. RPS? “Mass Effect” has always been strictly RPG. Why change it to RPS (roleplaying shooter) when RPG (role-playing game) has never let you down? It already has enough combat in it, don’t change it to more combat. It will just get old to those who are used to “Mass Effect.” It isn’t something that has been completely released, but all BioWare can talk about is RPS. Not once has there been talk of RPG. 3. Apparently the game is going to be a good start for first-time players of “Mass

Effect.” That is definitely something to worry about. Does that make it easier for “Mass Effect” junkies to play? If so, then it is definitely not going to be what everyone has been raving about.

What might be good: 1. Multiplayer. This could go both directions. Either you hate multiplayer (especially on something like “ME”), or you absolutely adore multiplayer (like me) and jump at the chance of using it. Multiplayer, personally, allows you to play the game differently than if you were

playing by yourself. Either way, games are meant to be played with more than one person. 2. Graphics changed drastically from the original “Mass Effect” to the second one. If this is supposed to a step forward, graphics should be amazing. From what is seen from the previews, it should turn out amazing. 3. Gameplay was better in “Mass Effect 2,” even though the storyline was worse. Same with graphics — if they are progressing, then so will gameplay in essence. The “Mass Effect 3” release date is March 6.
