Top Ranked Kentucky Stunned at Home by Evansville

I don’t think anyone saw this one coming; in its first week ranked at no.1 in the AP Poll, Kentucky suffered a loss to Evansville, trailing in all but nearly six minutes of the game.

Social media is calling the powerhouse team’s loss one of the biggest upsets in college hoops.

The loss was a first for Wildcats coach John Calipari; it was the first time Kentucky lost to a team outside the Power 5 conferences at home. Calipari gave the win to former Wildcat star Walter McCarty saying that he and his team “deserved to win. They fought the whole game and they were the tougher team.”

Evansville’s win had Twitter going crazy, even catching the eye of Houston Rockets star Eric Gordon who Tweeted “Evansville done shocked the world!!!”
