Calipari receives call from Texas coach after Carolina loss

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - John Calipari says the day after his
top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats were knocked from their unbeaten
perch, he got a call from the last coach who lost after climbing to
No. 1 in the polls.
Texas coach Rick Barnes' Longhorns were the previous No. 1,
until back-to-back losses last week against Kansas State and
Connecticut allowed Kentucky to overtake them. With Kentucky's loss
Tuesday to South Carolina, there are no undefeated teams in college
basketball.
Calipari said on his radio show Wednesday that Barnes told him
during their phone conversation that being No. 1 is like being
"under attack." The first-year Kentucky coach says his players
certainly experienced that, but it was "like more than we could
believe."
