Former Kentucky Wildcats guard Immanuel Quickley isn’t all that worried after watching his former team drop a home contest to the Richmond Spiders Sunday.

After the game, Quickley responded to an early November tweet from Big Blue Express saying come March, Calipari’s current squad will be just fine.

After defeating Morehead State in their season opener on Wednesday, the Cats fell flat against Richmond as despite double-doubles from both Olivier Sarr and Brandon Boston UK lost 74-64.

Despite the loss and an awful day shooting the basketball, UK is still just two games into the new season and again have one of the youngest rosters in the country, meaning it will take time for them to build chemistry and catch fire, which seems to be the case every year outside of 2015 during the Calipari era.

Plus, if the defending SEC Player of the Year who was part of two teams that had slow starts, including one who lost to Evansville and than won the SEC isn’t worried, the BBN shouldn’t be either.
