LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach John Calipari says he'll be looking for a working rotation in the season opener against Maryland on Friday night.
The third-ranked Wildcats' latest group of top-level recruits will make its debut under New York's bright lights at the Barclays Center Classic in Brooklyn.
The coach who masterfully guided a Kentucky squad led by freshmen to the national championship last year doesn't know what to expect from this new group that includes guard Archie Goodwin, forwards Nerlens Noel and Alex Poythress and center Willie-Cauley Stein.
Calipari wants to leave the Big Apple with a win, but he really wants the Wildcats to develop an identity and more team chemistry while they're in the city.
