This nightmare season continues for the Kentucky Wildcats, as they just lost their sixth game in a row. We’re not kidding, John Calipari’s Kentucky basketball squad hasn’t won a game since its Nov. 29 matchup with Morehead State.
Kentucky has lost to elite programs like Kansas and North Carolina, but it has also come up short against Georgia Tech and Richmond. For once, the Wildcats are not playing up to their potential.
“Kentucky’s supposedly best players just aren’t playing like it,” Jones tweeted. “Kudos to (Davion) Mintz, (Isaiah) Jackson, (Jacob) Toppin, (Lance) Ware and (Devin) Askew for bringing it but as long as UK doesn’t get what it needs from (Brandon) Boston, (Terrence) Clarke and (Olivier) Sarr, it doesn’t matter.”

While the majority of Kentucky analysts and fans are frustrated with this 1-6 start to the season, the rest of the country is poking fun at the program’s recent downfall.

Some people are simply shocked by this start to the season for Kentucky.
College basketball insider Jon Rothstein recently tweeted “Things you didn’t think you’d tweet: Kentucky is 1-6.”

The Wildcats will try to snap their losing streak next Saturday when they take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
It’s been a miserable season for Kentucky basketball thus far, but a win to start off its SEC schedule would help boost the team’s morale.
