Kentucky was not impressive at Texas A&M on Saturday. The Wildcats gave up dunk after dunk in transition, a ton of bad offensive rebounds and consistently sagged off shooters late in the shot clock, allowing A&M to stack up 85 points.
The Wildcats are an 8-seed in Joe Lunardi’s latest projected bracket after losing three games in a row. And now they have to play the SEC leader on the road.
Kentucky is also in danger of falling below .500 in the SEC. It isn’t likely it will finish sub-.500 but if it were to, it would be for the first time since 2009, which was before John Calipari even got to Kentucky.
Coach Cal won’t panic, though. The Wildcats will find a way to get in and when they do, it matters not how they were playing in the middle of February, but in another month. There’s still time for Kentucky.
Auburn also lost to Texas A&M last week but its loss came at home. Nevertheless, the Tigers moved up in Lunardi’s bracket this week, which I found unusual. They are still on the two-line but the top two, in Xavier’s bracket.
A 17-point win over Georgia over the weekend helped, though.
The Tigers played without their top scorer Bryce Brown, who injured his shoulder in the game against Texas A&M earlier in the week. It doesn’t sound like the injury is too serious but Bruce Pearl decided to play it safe and test his team’s depth.
And Auburn delivered. There were only two guys in double-digits but those two combined for 43 and all eight guys who played scored at least four points.
The next man up has been the story of Auburn’s season. It is on its way to its first NCAA Tournament since 2003.
