LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - What frustrates Kentucky players most about their three losses is that those outcomes could've gone the other way had they executed fundamentals at critical moments.
As a result, the No. 19 Wildcats (8-3) have spent this week brushing up on defense, free throw shooting and even attitude after letting things slip away at No. 14 North Carolina.
Freshman guard Andrew Harrison says the team now has ''a chip on our shoulders,'' which coach John Calipari hopes will result in victory when the Wildcats host Belmont on Saturday. The Bruins (8-3) have lost three of four but upset the same Tar Heels squad that beat Kentucky last Saturday.
That fact challenges the Wildcats to do the basics against Belmont, another team that could make them pay if they don't change.
