There have been rough patches in the road for this Kentucky Wildcats basketball team, but one pothole was deeper than the rest.
Some losses have been humbling. Some have sent the Wildcats stumbling.
“It was a blur,” forward Julius Randle said Friday. “Just the intensity and the fight just wasn’t there. It was embarrassing, but that’s why we get another chance to play.”
There’s no way for the Wildcats to erase the bad taste from last month’s loss to the Tigers, a game that infuriated fans who saw a lack of effort on the court. But with LSU visiting Rupp Arena on Saturday, UK at least has its chance to cook up something new.
