Would a loaded 2021-22 roster justify Kentucky’s struggles in 2020-21?

Sitting at 7-13 on the year with just four confirmed games on the schedule to close out the regular season, opportunities for Kentucky to turn things around are slim, to say the least. Even considering John Calipari’s push to add “a couple games” to the schedule during the last week of the regular season, we’re talking six more games heading into SEC Tournament play, meaning the absolute best winning percentage UK can have is .500 at 13-13 overall.

Sure, the Wildcats could end the regular season on a magical eight-game winning streak, make a run in Nashville and claim the SEC title to earn an NCAA Tournament bid, creating a season restart of sorts.
