Even though the University of Kentucky Wildcats' recent loss against the Duke Blue Devils provided a wealth of positives for the young team, it also exposed just how inexperienced they really are. 

Despite the media's narrative that John Calipari always has to reload with true freshman each season, he also always seemed to retain a few veterans to help guide the team (Patrick Patterson, Josh Harrellson, Darius Miller, etc.).

This year, the "old men" of the team are all players that still lack a lot of game experience, making this the most inexperienced team (in terms of players that see significant playing time) of any during Calipari's tenure at Kentucky.

That doesn't mean this year's Wildcat squad won't be good; in fact, the talent and ability level we've seen so far indicates that there is absolutely no reason they shouldn't return to the Final Four this year. But the young team will also most likely experience at least one more loss on the way as it continues to grow and come together as a team.

The following is a list of "trap games" on the Wildcats' (otherwise very easy) schedule that have the greatest chance of ending with a UK loss.
