The Kentucky Wildcats may not be the second-best team in America right now, but they avoided their second loss in Week 1 after rallying past SIU, 71-59.
Do not let the score deceive you in what was a dogfight that saw Kentucky trail by seven in the second half, only to finish the game on a 31-13 run to pull away for a double-digit win.
It’s clear we all need to reevaluate our expectations of this team, but at least we’re doing so for a 1-1 team, not an 0-2 team like it appeared Kentucky would be for much of the night.
kentucky will be back in action Wednesday night against North Dakota. Hopefully, a five-day break between now and then will help the Wildcats get right.
