Here is the prediction thread for Friday's game against Long Island at Rupp.
Use this link to open the prediction summary table.
I am starting the thread early because of the short time between games, and the Thanksgiving holiday in between the two games.
Long Island 65

Really hope the Cats put the clamps on in this one. It would be nice to see them hold a team to a final in the 40s.
Professor, I would like to change my prediction from UK-96 LIU-58 TO UK---92 LIU---69. If you can change it please do but if not thats quite alright. Thanks Sleepydog
Back to the top
I'll take sleepy's pick then.
UK 96, LIU 58.
Your team. All the time.
30 minutes to tip off for those who still may want to get a prediction in.
Professor I edited my scores from UK 90 LIU 52 and changed it to UK 90 LIU 65. Is that alright? If not I'll just keep the original 90-52 UK
mr289, sleepydog, and all others, you may change your prediction at any time prior to tip off IF you do it in a new post, and let me know that is what you are doing, just as mr289 and sleepdog did in this thread.
The wrong way is to go into your original post and edit because I do not go back and check for edits.
Again, it is each players' responsibility to check the prediction summary table to confirm that I entered your prediction correctly, and point out errors prior to the game.
I did just go back in a edit mine. so do I need to make a new post or are we good to go?
When you just made a new post, I saw it and made the change. If you edited the original post, I don't care, but you should know that I do not go back and look for edits to change the table.
You should see your changed prediction in the table if you refresh it now.
never mind Professor I just checked the scores in the summary table and saw where you changed it. Thanks.
The game is ready to begin. If anyone posts a prediction prior to tipoff, I will add them to the table.
