Kentucky has been knocked on its heels again after two straight road losses, a major blow to the defending national champion’s postseason hopes. It’s time for another gut check – or for this team, a series of gut checks.
”It’s a one-game season, and it will be every game we play from here on out,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said Friday. ”Are you going to fight like heck, play through the ups and downs of a game, or are you going to die? I can’t put it any more plainly or bluntly.
”You don’t know what’s going to happen until the game starts with this crew.”
The Bluegrass Nation won’t have to wait long to find out.
