The question on most folks’ minds this week is “what does it take for UK to make the NCAA”? I tend to be the most optimistic of people, believing that two wins in the next two games and the NCAA Tournament gets us in. I dont see a 20 win Kentucky team being left out of the big dance. Others think that the 20 wins must include one of the two games this week, and while I understand that view, I think it exaggerates how many teams are in line to take UK’s place.
A win at Tenn would be nice, but two wins (one of which is virtually guaranteed if we play Ole Miss in round 1 of the SEC as now projected) will do it…..just have to find a way to make it happen.
