FINAL: Alabama 78, Kentucky 52.— Gary Parrish (@GaryParrishCBS) January 7, 2023
UK is in a really bad place in Year 14 under John Calipari. The Wildcats are now 0-4 in Q1 opportunities with those four losses coming by an average of 16.5 points.
Exactly 77 different schools already have at least one Q1 win. UK still has zero.
Social media has also linked Calipari to the now-open Texas job, although that seems like a stretch for the moment. After firing Chris Beard, Texas will have plenty of options, and could also opt to make interim coach Rodney Terry the full-time coach. As for Kentucky, the host South Carolina Tuesday before another tough road game at No. 8 Tennessee (No. 2 in the NET rankings) next Saturday.
