Twitter reactions to Kentucky’s loss to Notre Dame

Kentucky was down by 24 points at one point, only to lose by one.

NCAA Basketball: Notre Dame at Kentucky Arden Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats fall to 1-4 on the season, this time at the hands of a 64-63 loss to Notre Dame at home.

Kentucky dug themselves a huge hole early, trailing by 22 points to the Irish heading into the half, which proved costly in the end.

Olivier Sarr has established himself as a go-to scorer and true post presence for the Wildcats. He scored 22 points on 11/16 shooting, and his final shot at the buzzer was just an inch away from being a game-winner.

Kentucky managed to outscore Notre Dame 37-16 in the second half. Was that a sign the Cats are finding themselves, or were the Irish just coasting after building such a big lead?

Either way, starting 1-4 is inexcusable, and I hate moral victories, even if there is a few to take from this game.

Up next, Kentucky faces UCLA next Saturday in the CBS Sports Classic at 2 pm EST.
