We're on a 2 game losing streak to teams we should have beat.

Down 29-22 to Kentucky with about 7 to go in the first half.

Edit: Make that 31-22 after bricking two free throws and giving up a layup.


I would still let Maddie Scherr ruin my life.

Kentucky is currently sitting at 156 in NET rankings, which is 5 spots away from dropping down to Quad 4.

A couple of weeks ago, we were discussing what was needed for this team to host.

Kentucky is 5-12 from 3 pt.
We are 1-10.

Kentucky is 4-4 in FTs.
We are 1-4.

Things starting to click now.

Up 41-35 with about 7 left in the 3rd.

Kentucky has yet to score this half.

Why do they do this?

And now we're down 2.

We've only scored 5 points in the first 7 minutes of this quarter.

I know nothing about WBB, but it looks we're just standing around on offense and certainly not getting back and helping out on D.

why can’t we just have good teams? To top it off, they just stand around to burn 15 seconds off the clock. WTactualF???
Ive never seen a losing team just stand around to burn the clock like that. Act like you want to try so kind of comeback.

That was our last shot at the double bye in the SECT, not that it matters the way they've played for the past 2 weeks.

I'm at a complete loss on this team. Looked like they were really coming together for a nice run 3 games ago and they have laid an Ostrich egg ever since.

I'm too old for this ****...

I was all in on Purcell, but these last two weeks have been putrid.

When can we not talk to him nice?

This team hasn't been good all season really. Take away the LSU game and they just haven't been. Point guard play is poor, no defense, lost a good post player to injury. Rogers got hot for a couple weeks but Powe disappeared. Jerk was bad last night. Just doesn't look like a "team". Carter was having a 20/20 night and nobody else showed up. Lots of selfish play at times.

It's a good thing we have fans who don't panic at the first sign of problems.
The first sign of problems was Chattanooga and maybe Miami. The second sign of problems was the first Kentucky game. Third sign of problems is how we can’t seem to hold a 4th quarter lead all season. We’re now on a 3 game losing streak that includes two of the worst teams in the league, one of which blew us out, our 4th sign of problems. 5th sign is that we’re regressing this late into the season.

So we’re on at least our 4th or 5th “sign of problems”.

We went from never losing a game under Purcell when leading with 5 minutes to go to blowing leads in the final 5 minutes in back to back games. This team is so weird. Some games they look very good and then others they look terrible. I can’t figure them out.

Weird and confusing is right. They had it all in front of them to get a nice NCAA seed and have just **** the bed.

They've been pretty damn solid on the road and often inexplicably bad at home. Beat LSU in an electric atmosphere. Pretty dominant win over Ole Miss at home. But just weak performances vs Vandy, Tennessee, Florida and Kentucky in home losses.

Frustrating as 17.
