Alabama blows out Kentucky as Wildcats suffer the largest home loss of the John Calipari era
After reeling off a few wins in a row, some Kentucky fans thought John Calipari and company had righted the ship. Turns out, they didn’t.
That’s because Alabama rolled into Lexington on Tuesday night and delivered the Wildcats the largest home loss of the John Calipari era, beating Kentucky 85-65.
The loss dropped Kentucky to 4-7 on the season and improved Alabama’s record to 10-3. This game marked the fifth win in a row for the Tide and secured first place in the SEC for Nate Oats’ team. Alabama is 5-0 in SEC action and is the only team to beat Tennessee this season.
John Petty Jr. led the way for Alabama, scoring 23 points in the game, including four three-point shots. The Crimson Tide nailed a total of 14 three-pointers in the game.
Kentucky was led by Devin Askew, who had 12 points in 36 minutes of action.
Alabama’s next game is scheduled to be a home game against Arkansas on Saturday, while Kentucky is scheduled to travel to Auburn on Saturday.
