Five questions from Kentucky's shocking March Madness upset loss to Saint Peter's

In the first truly shocking upset of March Madness 2022, a Kentucky Wildcats team that many bracket-fillers and national observers had pegged for a Final Four appearance (at a minimum) fell to the 15th-seeded Saint Peter's Peacocks, 85-79 in overtime on Thursday in Indianapolis.

Among ESPN's 54-person panel, 37 had the Wildcats reaching the Final Four, with a selection of those picking Kentucky to win what would have been the program's ninth national title. As it is, the 2022 NCAA tournament will be without one of its perennial blue bloods, throwing into greater question what is now perceived to be a wide-open East Region bracket and eliciting an offseason worth of major questions for head coach John Calipari and his program.
