There have been 30 games now. Thirty chances to plug the holes and fix whatever’s so often ailed this Kentucky basketball team. Now there are precious few left, and if Thursday’s 72-62 UK loss at Georgia was any indication, maybe things are beyond fixing.
“If we haven’t changed over the duration of the season, I don’t know what to say,” guard Archie Goodwin said in a postgame interview that sounded more like a venting session. “It doesn’t look like anything’s going to change.”
Maybe there’s still time.
Maybe the Wildcats (20-10, 11-6 Southeastern Conference) can be the team they were in a win against Missouri and not the one that’s lost two of three since and four straight away from Rupp Arena. Without Nerlens Noel in UK’s last four road games, UK has been outscored by 17, 30, 13 and 10.
