Calipari warns fans Cats will "lose early"

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach John Calipari has a message
for fans expecting the Wildcats to rip off their first 19 games as
they did a year ago: Don't count on it.
Calipari said Tuesday he expects the Wildcats to "lose early"
while they figure things out. Kentucky has to replace four starters
and five players who declared for the NBA draft after leading the
team to a 35-3 record a season ago.
Calipari says he "screwed up" by overscheduling. Kentucky will
play in the Maui Invitational against teams like Oklahoma and
Virginia and nonconference games against North Carolina, Indiana
and Notre Dame.
The coach believes the tough opening weeks will benefit the team
down the road.
Kentucky begins practice with Big Blue Madness on Friday at Rupp
Arena.
