The Kentucky Wildcats had a three-game winning streak after beating the Tennessee Volunteers in Knoxville, and they have accumulated a certain amount of motivation during the time leading to the SEC Championship. They are still only 8-13 years old, but three more games have been added to the official regular season schedule, plus “several games” may be added in the last week of the season, they can form a fairly stable team in Nashville Win a winning streak before running.
The head coach of the United Kingdom, John Calipari, said on the post-match radio show: “They are in a good situation, but now, you have to finish the game.” “You have to play the next game, and you have to play well. , Otherwise you will be defeated.”
As of today, the next game of Kentucky is currently scheduled to play against Texas A&M at Rupp Arena this Tuesday. Although the Aggies has postponed the sixth consecutive game, due to the good results of the COVID-19 test, contact tracking and subsequent The quarantine resulted in five delays in the number of individuals in the plan.
As the procedure is still suspended, it is not clear whether A&M will be cleaned up in time to travel to Lexington in just three days. From Calipari’s comments after the game, their view of Kentucky does not seem to be optimistic.
When asked about discussing the possibility of adding new opponents on Friday morning, Calipari slightly avoided these comments, adding that Britain might only participate in three SEC games in the final week of the season.
“Yes (we can add new games), but the challenges these kids have just experienced, I’m not sure if we need a few days to catch our breath,” Calipari said. “Then last week we tried to play A&M and South Carolina at the same time and we both won three games. Played in Mississippi and then played two home games before our conference tournament. That’s what I want to do. These kids Need to breathe, come on. They experienced an attack.”
With this proposal, Kentucky will not be able to participate in the game until the Wildcats and the Florida Gators at Rupp Stadium on Saturday, and then on Tuesday, March 2 when they travel to Oxford, Mississippi to fight Miss Ole. Then, according to Calipari’s suggestion, between March 3rd and 7th, the UK will participate in the Texas A&M and South Carolina makeup competitions, thus providing Kentucky with another four games.
Then from there, the UK will go to Nashville next week to hold the SEC Championship, hoping to stay from March 10th to 14th and win the conference championship trophy.
