Who’s Not

The Kentucky organization as a whole – (Coach Calipari and Cam’ron Fletcher) —

Well, the misfortune continues for the Wildcats this season as they still sit in last place of the SEC at 1-6. Coach John Calipari asked freshman Cam’ron Fletcher to step away from the team a week ago to reflect and spoke on organizing both his personal and team issues. This came as a result of Fletcher being saliently upset during Kentucky’s 75-63 loss to North Carolina on Dec.19th. As assumed, Calipari explained and confirmed in the postgame conference that Fletcher’s behavior was due to his dissatisfaction of playing time.

(update) Calipari stated Monday (Dec. 28th) that freshman forward Cam’Ron Fletcher is back with the team. In addition, Fletcher issued a statement apologizing to both fans, teammates, and staff for his behavior. He explained that his emotions got the best of him as he only wanted to help the team but still takes full culpability for his actions.

Top 5 Ball Distributors

1. Savir Wheeler (Georgia) — With the most assists in the conference at 52, Wheeler averages 7.4 APG – making him the most efficient passer in the SEC. The only downside is that he also leads this crew in turnovers with 35, averaging five per game.

2. Jalen Tate (Arkansas) — Tate lands here racking up 37 total assists, delivering 4.6 APG. He takes care of the ball slightly better than Wheeler, but still upholds 19 turnovers thus far.

3. Justin Powell (Auburn) — Powell finds himself producing just under what Tate is. He’s posted 36 assists on 4.5 APG. He is averaging 2.3 TOPG this season with 18 total.

4. Jahvon Quinerly (Alabama) — Similar to Powell, the Bama guard also has 18 turnovers, yet he has 29 assists this season averaging 3.6 APG.

5. Santiago Vescovi (Tennessee) — Here we’ve easily got the most cautious passer, having only nine turnovers this season averaging just 1.5 TOPG. Vescovi has piled up 28 assists averaging 4.APG.
