I wondered the same thing, but it's not been easy to find that stat.
Most people that defend Tubby (myself included up until this year) say that he always gets his teams ready for tournament time, but I simply don't see that happening this year. They've lost so many close games the exact same way that it's apparent that this team simply cannot make the adjustments necessary to win close games.
I predict they'll squeeze into the NCAA Tournament, but it will be as a 15-16 seed.
Regarding assistant coaches, I believe it's very possible that the Wildcat's mediocre coaching staff could be the problem. Still, if the HEAD coach can't make changes necessary to improve the team, should he still be the head coach? Honestly, I don't know if I'm willing to give Tubby another year even if he were to announce a house-cleaning in regards to his assistants. Tubby lost control of this team back when Gerald Fitch was still playing. The off-court problems have disappeared, but the on-court ones are still front-and-center.
