UK is 7-1 at Rupp as they play host to Eastern Michigan Wednesday at 6 p.m.

The Eagles are still looking for their first win away from home.

Ryan Harrow is doing a great job taking care of the ball. He has dished out 21 assists with only three turnovers in the last six games.

Alex Poythress, who Cal is trying to push to play much harder leads the SEC in field goal percentage at 64%.

Archie Goodwin is the only freshman in the country to lead his team in scoring and assists per game while also adding at least five rebounds.

Freshman Nerlens Noel logged his first career double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds vs. Marshall. Led by Noel's 9 rebounds a game, UK has posted at least 40 in the last five games.

Sophomore Kyle Wiltjer, who hit four big shots from downtown, has drained at least one 3-pointer in 11 of 12 games this season.

UK is the only BCS level school to not return a single player with at least one start from the 2011-12 season.
