“It just ends. It’s done.” — UK head coach John Calipari, on a season-ending loss. With a loss in the NCAA Tournament, the entire season momentarily crashes down. “Falls off a cliff,” as Calipari put it. Sure, there will be plenty of reflection. But the months-long buildup has an abrupt climax, one that came too soon for UK. As soon as UK’s season officially ended with a 56-55 loss to Connecticut in the Final Four, the questions began in the locker room, asking about next year even as the players sat disappointed on their locker room chairs.
