Can the Cats snap their three game losing streak?

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats are back in Rupp Arena to take on the LSU Tigers. They’re coming off losing three straight, including a loss on Wednesday night at Georgia to a BAD Bulldog team.

I don’t know what can be salvaged from this season aside from hoping that guys can continue to improve and come back much better next season. Kentucky will certainly lose BJ Boston, Terrence Clarke, Olivier Sarr, and Davion Mintz; the rest of the team will have an opportunity to come back and be much better.

As the rest of the games go, I’ll be happy if Kentucky wins but fundamentally it won’t change my outlook on the season if they do. The tournament is not in the future for this group and I don’t trust them enough to win the SEC Tournament if they even have one.

So try to enjoy the game today as much as possible and be sure to have plenty of alcohol at hand.

Tweet of the Day

Isaiah Jackson is the best pro prospect on the team if he can stay consistent and put it all together.
