There’s no sugarcoating what happened last week. A brutal overtime loss to Michigan State and then a blowout loss at Gonzaga left many in the Big Blue Nation what this team is really capable of after there was so much promise
Last week wasn’t pretty for Kentucky. It began with a double-overtime loss to the then-unranked Michigan State Spartans. The Wildcats then blew out a struggling South Carolina State team, but collapsed once again when they faced competition equal or greater to their own skill level.
Kentucky flew out west for their first of a six-game series with then-No. 2 Gonzaga and were completely out-classed in the loss. Frustration is already growing in Lexington.
The Wildcats will host North Florida this afternoon at Rupp Arena — a game where the home team is favored by a whopping 26.5 points. Kentucky should and will most likely win convincingly over the Ospreys and then again next week when they host in-state opponent Bellarmine.
The talent is certainly there, and head coach John Calipari has as much experience as any active coach. But something is holding these Wildcats back from playing to their full potential.
Hopefully, their journey to solving their problems begins this afternoon in a win over the North Florida Ospreys.
