Kentucky isn’t NCAA tournament-worthy. Not right now. The Wildcats barely got past Vanderbilt on the road earlier in the week and followed up the near-loss with a home setback against a mediocre Texas A&M team on Saturday.
John Calipari’s team is now 10-5 overall with a single quality win on its resume — the season-opener in Brooklyn against a non-ranked Maryland team. Let’s face it: If the name on the resume wasn’t Kentucky, these guys wouldn’t even be in the equation right now. The wins — besides Maryland — are as follows: Lafayette, Morehead State, LIU-Brooklyn, Samford, Portland, Lipscomb, Marshall, Eastern Michigan and Vandy. All except for Maryland and Vanderbilt have come at Rupp.
