LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Basketball fans in the Bluegrass State have had the wind knocked out of them with both Louisville and Kentucky being punched in the gut.
The fifth-ranked Cardinals (16-3, 4-2) have lost back-to-back games since entering last weekend as the nation's top-ranked team. Louisville travels to Georgetown on Saturday looking to bounce back from its latest setback, a 73-64 Big East Conference loss at struggling Villanova.
Kentucky fans have even more reason to be concerned.
The young, inconsistent Wildcats were halfway to winning their third consecutive Southeastern Conference game at unranked Alabama before letting it slip away. Kentucky (12-6, 3-2) ended up losing 59-55 - which could be another blemish on its resume if the defending champions need an at-large bid to get into the NCAA tournament. Kentucky hosts LSU Saturday.
