The Kentucky Wildcats’ issues go far beyond just one player. There isn’t just one person to blame for the entire team being out of focus, wildly inconsistent with their efforts and blatantly missing shots game after game. However, the Wildcats could indeed use a turnaround from highly-ranked recruit Brandon Boston.
Boston came in to Kentucky as their highest-ranked recruit since 2015 and has a ways to go before he mirrors that status. The freshman is scoring more than 14 points per game but averaging a miserable 38.4% from the field. Not to mention just 10% from behind the arc.
Boston has at least scored, but it hasn’t come efficiently. It’s clear this Kentucky team needs his offensive boost and ability to score independently. Therefore the quicker Boston can get back on track, the quicker Kentucky may begin to look better as a team, too.
It seems like all players have a shooting slump. Maybe Boston’s just happens to be during the beginning of his Kentucky career. But if he could just slash and drive towards the basketball to create easier looks for himself, those shots from behind the arc may end up starting to fall.

I think many can second this.
Calipari has quite the track record with successful recruits from Canada.
We all know Trevor Lawrence will go first... but who goes after him?
How did no one notice this before kickoff?
But can they do it for a full 40 minutes?
What do you deem as a fair offer?
Is this much to do about nothing?
Nothing can go right for these Wildcats lately.
What dark horse destination will hop into the mix?
