ATHENS, Ga. — UK will head into its final game of the regular season riding a losing streak. Thursday night saw the Cats fall, 72-62, to the Georgia Bulldogs at Stegeman Coliseum in Athens. Postgame, freshman guard Archie Goodwin was in no mood to mince his words.
The Cats didn’t take a few possessions off in their 73-60 loss at Arkansas on Saturday; they took the majority of the second half off.
They “fought like Wildcats,” as freshman Nerlens Noel would say, for 45 minutes to beat Missouri a week ago and then seemingly forgot what got them back on the smiling side of the bubble.
The UK men’s basketball team could not overcome Arkansas’ home-court advantage Saturday, tying a season-high with 19 turnovers in a 73-60 loss to the Razorbacks in Fayetteville, Ark.
