If there was a team that Kentucky needs to play next, it would be LSU. The Tigers have lost 9 games in a row and have only won 1 SEC game. During their losing streak, LSU has been outscored by an average of 18.2 points/game and have lost all but one by double digits. Their best win is hard to choose. They beat an Old Dominion team that is 3rd in C-USA, beat a Houston team that is 3rd in the AAC and beat the College of Charleston who is 1st in the CAA. I am not sure if any of those can be counted as “good wins.”
All of this is going without mentioning the head coach of LSU, Johnny Jones. We all have our best memories of how terrible Johnny Jones is, but my personal favorite is his technical foul during a LSU run during the game in Baton Rouge last season. Surprisingly, Jones has not been truly awful against the Cats, he is 2-5 overall, but 2 of those 5 losses have come by 5 points or less.
With all of this being said, LSU is not a good basketball team. Kentucky should win and should win big. Plus, this may be the last time we get to see Johnny Jones on the opposing bench, we have to enjoy it while we can.
