Kentucky's first game without star freshman Nerlens Noel didn't go the Wildcats' way. Tennessee used sharp shooting from behind the arc as well as getting to the free-throw line to dominate Kentucky 88-58 on Saturday.
Instead of coming out and fighting for its lost brother, Kentucky looked like a team that was defeated from the start. The Wildcats showed no energy and Willie Cauley-Stein, who took the place of Noel, was hardly a factor to say the least.
With its tournament fate squarely on the line, Kentucky enters a tough stretch to close the season, including games against Missouri and Florida. With the first game without Noel under the Wildcats' belt, let's take a look at 10 takeaways from the blowout loss to Tennessee.
