John Calipari didn’t forget how to coach, and certainly didn’t forget how to recruit, but the Kentucky Wildcats are really missing something in this terrible season. Built by the usual accompaniment of talented freshman, UK is significantly longing for some grown men. Needing time in the weight room, and time for these scars to mend over into toughness.
But time isn’t something on Calipari’s side, considering they’ve lost 3-of-4 games, including a 20-point loss at home against tonight’s opponent, Alabama. This time around, Bama is at home, still big and tough and experienced, and only favored by 7 points. While potential NBA Lottery pick Brandon Boston is improving at a rapid pace, that Petty/Shackelford backcourt of Alabama combined for 41 last time on the road, and should find the familiar shooting backdrop enticing.
Bama has rolled off nine straight wins, and only would have allowed a 7-point cover once at Auburn through that stretch.
💰 Ian's Pick: Roll Tide -7
