    With Kentucky off to its worst start since the 1926-27 season, head coach John Calipari has asked freshman Cam’Ron Fletcher to “step away from the team.”

    Fletcher is averaging 2.2 points and 2.2 rebounds in 8.7 minutes through six games. The 6-foot-6 forward from St. Louis chose Kentucky over Michigan State, Missouri, North Carolina, and Alabama in August 2019.

    Fletcher was seen in tears on the Kentucky bench in the final minutes of their 75-63 loss to North Carolina on Saturday.

    At this point, it’s unclear when or if Fletcher will return to the team.
