Kentucky head coach John Calipari believes a successful person never loses. Instead of losing, he believes they learn from their mistakes and move forward to become better at what they do. This year, these Wildcats have had several “opportunities to learn” following the loss of a game.
However, they can’t seem to turn the corner and find the spark they need. With any postseason dreams they may have once had now likely out of reach, how long will it take Calipari to change his offense?
Not necessarily changing everything he likes to incorporate. But how about making life easier on his players? Start recruiting more players who can knock down an open shot consistently, even if they aren’t a flashy five-star recruit. Or recruiting a player who may not be as athletically gifted on both ends of the court but can commit to playing lock down defense or efficiently running Kentucky’s offense.
With Calipari, everything starts at recruiting. He’s the man in all of college basketball when it comes to that category, and he has the largest influence to “change” or “improve” Kentucky’s efficiency on the basketball court.
No one enjoys losing and no one enjoys having to “learn” 11 times 2⁄3 of the way through a pandemic year in college basketball. Something tells me Calipari will seriously commit to “changing” his offense and “learning” from his mistakes.

Players don’t want an all star game, players agreed to an All Star game.. players like money, All Star game is about money. The end— Doug Gottlieb (@GottliebShow) February 5, 2021
What’s your take on the players participating in All-Star Weekend?
LeBron: “I have zero energy and zero excitement about an All-Star game this season.” He said he was looking to a five-day break in March after the shortened offseason and believes it is not a wise decision during the pandemic, either. “I’ll be there physically but not mentally”— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) February 5, 2021
Something tells me they could actually care less.
An excellent breakdown of a game poorly executed by the Wildcats.
Is this Jarred Vanderbilt 2.0?

Something says that this likely isn’t 100% true.
Inching closer and closer to first overall.
Pretty shocking move after they added Nolan Arenado.
