Kentucky players did not cut down nets after winning SEC Tournament
Kentucky’s basketball players did not cut down the nets after winning the SEC Tournament on Sunday because they have much bigger goals in mind. Instead, they let the team managers handle the job.
The Wildcats supplemented their 31-0 perfect regular season by going 3-0 in the conference tourney to run their unblemished mark to 34-0. The goal has been to go 40-0, which would mean a perfect run through the NCAA Tournament and national championship.
Even though the team’s players did not cut down the nets, that does not mean they did not celebrate or take home souvenirs:

I’ve expressed a dislike of John Calipari in the past, but I have to admit I want to see Kentucky go 40-0. It’s fun watching teams make history, and going 40-0 would be an incredible feat.
