SEC fans celebrate Kentucky's one-and-done SEC Tournament appearance
Kentucky is headed home early.
John Calipari’s latest team couldn’t manage to win a single game in the 2021 SEC Tournament, losing to Mississippi State 74-73 on Thursday.
This loss was historic for a number of reasons, among them, this marks the first time Kentucky has failed to reach the quarterfinals in SEC Tournament history.
Believe it or not, Thursday’s win was Mississippi State’s first victory over a John Calipari-coached Kentucky team.
Now the Bulldogs will advance to the next round of the tourney to face Alabama on Friday.
If you missed it, here was the final play of the game.

Following the game, fans from around the SEC were eager to jump on the Cats:
Bye Kentucky…horrible play call. Down 1 point and you pull up for a long 3. You take it hard to the basket hoping you make the shot or get fouled. I don't get pulling up for 3 down one point. I am fine with the result, but I still don't get it!

FIRST time in 59 SEC tournaments that Kentucky isn’t one of the last 8 teams standing.
