Jeffries PF | Garrison Brooks C | Javian Davis KENTUCKY WILDCATS PG | Sahvir Wheeler SG | Davion Mintz SF | Kellan Grady PF | Keion Brooks C | Oscar Tshiebwe Rupp Arena, 430 W Vine St, Lexington, United States is the place to be this Wednesday, January 26 to witness the University of Kentucky against the Mississippi State— It’s Wildcats versus Bulldogs. Full of promising new talent, the National Collegiate Atheletic Association (NCAA) is bringing the Southeastern teams together for a match. In the Southeastern league for this season, Kentucky is currently in second place and Mississippi State is trailing closely behind in fourth. Looking to quickly overshadow their most recent game’s loss, Kentucky is coming in hot and ready for victory, but will Mississippi State humble them on their way up? Here are the team statistics of the two teams this season. Taking a look at the numbers alone, the Wildcats outweigh the Bulldogs’ team stats. Mississippi Bulldogs Kentucky Wildcats Points Per Game 75.5 82.3 Points Against 65.3 63.7 Field Goal % 48.0 49.8 Rebounds Per Game 37.6 41.6 Assists Per Game 14.4 16.9 Blocks Per Game 3.9 4.9 Steals Per Game 8.6 7.1 Of course, we shouldn’t just look at the numbers as the players are the star of the show. There are two top players from each team this season: Iverson Molinar and Garrison Brooks for the Bulldogs, and Oscar Tshiebwe and Sahvir Wheeler for the Wildcats. For the major point contributors, it’s Molinar versus Tshiebwe. Molinar boasts a higher PPG (Points per Game) and FT% (Free Throw Percentage) but Tshiebwe takes the FG% (Field Goal Percentage) home. As for the rebounds, it’s Brooks against Tshiebwe. Tshiebwe takes the cake for the rebounds as he scores more than double of Brooks’ stats. Lastly, for the assists, Molinar comes in again, this time against Wheeler. Wheeler outperforms Molinar’s APG (Assists Per Game) and TOPG (Turnovers Per Game), but Molinas has a higher MPG (Minutes Played Per Game). Overall, things are looking pretty neck-in-neck for both teams but Kentucky has a better record, all things considered. To conclude, it’s safe to say that Kentucky Wildcats will be taking the win home. Besides the two highest pointers from the Wildcats, the team just has better chemistry and synergy when put side-by-side against their rivals. Plus, they have the advantage of playing home, it’s foolproof. | 10 AM, January 26, 2022, Rupp Arena, KY. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
