Have you noticed, conversation about the University of Kentucky basketball team has evolved over the course of this season?
Through December, the question was, “Will Kentucky go undefeated?”
Now that January is turning to February, and the Wildcats (20-0) are halfway to 40-0, the question has changed. Now they’re asking, “Should Kentucky go undefeated?” Implicit is the question, does Kentucky need to lose a game? Would it benefit this team to drop a game heading into the postseason?
After the Wildcats beat Missouri 69-53 Thursday night in Columbia, Mo., I have the answer to such questions.
Absolutely not. No way. Nada.
