LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach John Calipari told whoever
would listen before the season the Wildcats would struggle early
He proved to be right.
The 17th-ranked Wildcats (5-2) have lost two of their last three
heading into Wednesday's game against No. 23 Notre Dame at Freedom
Hall, including a 75-73 loss to North Carolina on Saturday.
Calipari says Kentucky's biggest problem is a lack of trust,
something he expects the Wildcats to work on as they learn to play
Kentucky hasn't lost two straight games during Calipari's
tenure, but the Fighting Irish (8-0) will prove a difficult
opponent in the SEC/Big East Invitational.
Notre Dame starts five seniors, all of whom played in 77-67
victory over the Wildcats in the NIT two years ago in coach Billy
Gillispie's final game at Kentucky.
