UK opens practice to students, faculty and national TV audience

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky opened its practice on Wednesday, allowing students, faculty, staff and a national television audience in on the top-ranked Wildcats' preparation as they seek to become the first team since 2003 to finish the Southeastern Conference undefeated.

Kentucky (25-1, 11-0) next plays against Mississippi on Saturday. They also have games remaining at Mississippi State, home versus Vanderbilt and Georgia and the regular-season finale at Florida on March 4.

Kentucky coach John Calipari says he decided to open practice after what happened in the days leading up to his team's only loss. The Wildcats beat North Carolina by a point on Dec. 3, but fell at Indiana on Christian Watford's buzzer beating 3-pointer exactly one week later.

About 2,000 people attended practice that featured drills, a scrimmage and a question-and-answer session.
