John Calipari tried to brace us for growing pains, but I don’t think anyone expected this. After 20 minutes of play, Kentucky is losing to Utah Valley 34-25. No, that is not a typo.
So far, Kentucky is hitting only 22% of its shots and is being outrebounded 25-16. Nick Richards leads the way with 8 points and 2 rebounds, followed by Hamidou Diallo and Shai Alexander with 5 points each.
In short, one of the worst halves of the Calipari era. He wasn’t kidding when he said we have a really, really long ways to go.
