Luck was not in the Wildcats’ favor this season

NCAA Basketball: SEC Conference Tournament-Mississippi State vs Kentucky Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

With the 2020-21 season officially closed on the Kentucky Wildcats, most of us will not look back with fond memories of what should have been a talented team, turn into a complete disaster that you couldn’t look away from.

With a 9-16 final record, they officially became the worst team in school history, failing to get to double-digit wins for the first time in close to 100 years.

On top of that, this team also met another historic mark. Multiple games came down to the final shot or possession for these Wildcats this year.

So many came down to the wire, that this Kentucky team became the first team in school history to lose four games by a single point, according to Corey Price.

If for some reason that isn’t enough to convince you that luck was not on their side this season, Kentucky ranked No. 354 out of 357 teams in the KenPom ‘Luck’ rankings. Kentucky was the fourth-unluckiest team in the entire country.

We’re certainly due for one next season, right? Right?
