THE OPPONENTS: lona brings a 4-2 record inco the UKIT after capturing the title ot last weekend's Manufacturers Hanover Classic "with victories over Grambling (77-65) and Morehead State (69-bb). Texas A&M brings a 4-1 mark into the tournament after defeating Nebraska at College Station last Saturday, 6b-o4. The Aggies' only loss of the season was a 93-79 setback at Oklahoma in the first game of the year. Besides Nebraska, A&M owns victories over SW Texas Snare, Oral Roberts and Texas Southern. Boston University is 4-2 coming into the tournament after defeating Colgate, 78-65, last Thursday, Dec. 11. THE WILDCATS: Kentucky ran its record to 3-1 on the season after downing Lamar at Rupp Arena Saturday night, 71-56. The Wildcats placed four players in double figures, led by Ed Davender's 16 points. James Blackmon added 13, while Rob Lock and Derrick Miller each scored 12. Perhaps the most impressive aspects of Kentucky's game were the shooting 1,63.8 percent from the floor) and the assists (23). The Cats, however, were once again out rebounded (29-27), which illustrates UK's cent imied lack of strength inside. Free throws continue to be an area of concern for Coach Eddie Sutton as the Cats hit only h-of-12 from the charity stripe. For the season, UK is shooting a .dismal^57.1,percent from the line.
