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.''
