Handicapping the UT-UK game

Here's my somewhat oversimplified take on tonight's Tennessee-Kentucky basketball game:

If UT shoots around 50 percent with 12 or fewer turnovers, UT wins.

If UT shoots around 45 percent with 13-16 turnovers, it's a tossup.

If UT shoots around 40 percent with 17-20 turnovers, UK wins by 10 or so.

If UT shoots around 35 percent and makes 21-25 turnovers, UK wins by 15 or so.

If UT shoots less than 35 percent and makes more than 25 turnovers, UK wins by whatever margin it chooses.

My pick: UT shoots 42 percent, commits 21 turnovers and loses 70-58.
