The Kentucky Wildcats’ start to the 2020-21 season is not sitting well with the Big Blue Nation.
After dominating Morehead State in their season opener, Kentucky’s watched their offense go cold as they’ve dropped back-to-back games after losing to Richmond at Rupp Arena and Kansas in the Champions Classic in Indianapolis.
Despite the slow start, UK head coach John Calipari doesn’t appear overly worried as he tweeted a message to the fan base on Wednesday urging them to keep believing in his team and taking responsibility for their inability to hold onto a late four-point lead.
“We came down on five straight possessions and made one or no passes before a shot,” Calipari tweeted. “It means I haven’t done a good job teaching these kids how to win.”
Cal added that he hopes the fan base will “stick with” his team as they navigate through their early-season woes.
Watched the tape of our game and showed our team the last six minutes. We were up four with the ball twice. We came down on five straight possessions and made one or no passes before a shot. It means I haven’t done a good job teaching these kids how to win.— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) December 2, 2020
Let me say this though to our fans: Stick with these kids. This is a good group. They really are great kids. They just have to learn and create new habits, and we have to teach them and get them on the same page. Time to get back to work!!!— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) December 2, 2020
The Wildcats will be back in action Sunday in Atlanta against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
