John Calipari and Kentucky basketball team frustrated


LEXINGTON — Kentucky has been scoring easily this season, but it was very high against UNC-Wilmington on Saturday.

The Wildcats are rarely careless with the ball, and they struggled with their decision-making against the Coastal Athletic Conference’s plucky Seahawks.

Both factors doomed England’s defeat at Rupp Arena on Saturday afternoon.

After trailing 41-33 at halftime, Kentucky failed to mount a comeback in the final 20 minutes, shockingly losing its first game of the season at home 80-73.

“We couldn’t stay in front of the ball,” UK coach John Calipari said. “You can plan and do all these things, but when you get a lead and they go for a layup on a straight-line drive? That’s tough.”
