LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach John Calipari hopes ``Camp Cal'' yields a better-conditioned and more committed team.
Two days in, the intense workouts have at least gotten the Wildcats' attention.
With no early risers on the roster, Kentucky players have found it harder to awake for the 7 a.m. workouts than the exercises. Not that basic training has been easy, what with Wildcats strength coach Ray ``Rock'' Oliver screaming at them as they run.
Then comes afternoon practice with Calipari, who instituted the routine after Tuesday's victory over Samford. Despite a rout of the Bulldogs, he was unhappy with the Wildcats' second-half effort and vowed to change their attitude and fitness.
Kentucky's response on Saturday against Portland could determine whether Camp Cal lasts a few days or continues into the Christmas break.
