On Monday, the sky kept falling around Kentucky men's basketball when coach John Calipari announced that he has asked freshman Cam'Ron Fletcher to "step away" from the team after the four-star recruit was visibly upset toward the end of the team's Saturday loss to North Carolina.

In a series of tweets, Calipari said he made the decision to preserve a culture that "will not change."

After the 75-63 loss to the Tar Heels -- which punctuated the first 1-5 start for Kentucky since 1927 and the first five-game losing streak under Calipari at Kentucky -- Calipari said Fletcher, who played two minutes in the loss, had apologized for his demeanor on the sideline.
