It’s beginning to feel like “deja vu” all over again for the Kentucky Wildcats Basketball team. Kentucky, who was ranked #1 in the preseason, has not lost two of three games and is now in the deep end of the college basketball  Top 25 polls.  Kentucky fell from the #11 spot to #19 in the AP Poll but it should be noted all three teams that beat Kentucky are in the top fourteen.  The SEC has three teams in the AP Poll as Florida and Missouri come in at #16 and #23.

To be honest, Kentucky probably deserves this rating but this is not a repeat of the 2012-13 season. Kentucky has not had any bad losses yet and have been competitive in all their games. UK gets a chance to redeem themselves on December 28 versus Louisville.
