The Kentucky Wildcats are a basketball team in need of a big jump in performance.
Last season, the Wildcats won 21 games and finished 8-5.
This season, they are 9-11 and have lost four straight games.
The team’s record in conference play is a dismal 16-35, and it has been ranked 29th in KenPom.com’s preseason poll.
The Wildcats are also having trouble with turnovers, which is a problem.
Kentucky has just 13 more than any other team in the country.
And the team’s scoring average is just 37.4 points per game.
The team is trying to address that with the Road Tests.
The Wildcats will open their season Saturday against North Carolina in the second game of their series against the Tar Heels.
The first game is Friday against Georgia Tech.
Both games will be played at the AT&T Center.
Coach John Calipari is not only looking to improve his team’s performance, but he also wants to make sure he can compete with the rest of the nation in basketball.
The Kentucky Wildcats have been ranked in the top-10 of KenPot.com since the beginning of January.
The program has a record of 27-8 in its last 31 games.
However, they have been one of the teams that have struggled to win in the Big East.
The ACC has been good to the Wildcats in recent seasons, winning 12 of its last 15 games.
But it is Kentucky that is looking to be the conference’s biggest winner.
