LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Now that John Calipari's young Kentucky squad has shown its capable of playing with the kind of intensity and teamwork it takes to dominate a conference opponent, the Wildcats coach would like his team to do it consistently.
Kentucky (12-5, 3-1) is looking for its third consecutive win in Tuesday night's Southeastern Conference game at Alabama. The Crimson Tide (11-6, 3-1) is shooting a league-best 46 percent on 3-pointers in SEC games using a four-guard lineup that plays physical.
The Wildcats are still learning how to play physical but Saturday's 75-53 rout at Auburn shows their improvement. Kentucky shut down the cold-shooting Tigers in the second half. The Wildcats pushed Auburn around on the boards, increased their defensive pressure and turned a five-point halftime lead into a blowout.
