Wednesday Quickies: On to Georgia Tech

Kentucky needs to regroup for a matchup on Sunday

NCAA Basketball: State Farm Champions Classic-Kansas at Kentucky Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

With back-to-back losses, there is little time to dwell over what could’ve been, as the Kentucky Wildcats now prepare for a matchup against Georgia Tech on Sunday.

Losing a close game last night against Kansas was not how this team envisioned the Champions Classic going, but at 1-2 with some major offensive issues becoming more and more evident, the Wildcats will need to get back on track against a Georgia Tech squad that is also reeling off back-to-back losses.

The Yellow Jackets lost their season opener in a 4OT thriller with Georgia State, falling 123-120 and then followed that with a 10-point loss to Mercer. On paper, this should be a matchup Kentucky wins, but this season, early on especially, nothing can be taken as a given.

Picking up a win at Georgia Tech would provide Kentucky with a much-needed bounce back victory, evening up the record at 2-2 before heading into a crucial three-game stretch over the next three weeks where the Wildcats will take on Notre Dame, UCLA, and Louisville.

Hopefully Sunday’s matchup with Georgia Tech can provide a momentum launch into the next few weeks for this young Wildcats team.
