NCAA Basketball: Eastern Kentucky at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

No. 1 Kentucky’s loss to unranked Evansville on Tuesday evening came as a complete shock.

The Wildcats were 25-point favorites and just a week past their dominating display of defense against former top-team Michigan State. In our social media-crazed society, it’s no secret that the team has been fully exposed to all of the heat that comes with a letdown loss such as this.

However, the Wildcats’ head coach remains fully confident in his team (as he should) and is ready to coach them up.
