LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - John Calipari isn't happy with Kentucky's effort on the boards.
He didn't specifically say anything to the No. 3 Wildcats about their rebounding during weekend practices. But by the time players finished running, Calipari had gotten his message across.
The Wildcats were pushed around in their 72-69 season-opening victory over Maryland. The Terrapins outrebounded Kentucky 54-38 and had 28 on the offensive end. That's not supposed to happen against Kentucky's vaunted frontcourt featuring 7-foot Willie Cauley-Stein and 6-10 Nerlens Noel.
Calipari doesn't want it to happen again. Neither does Cauley-Stein, who says he ``doesn't want to do anything'' but rebound after the extra running.
Kentucky plays No. 8 Duke Tuesday night in Atlanta. It's the first meeting between the storied programs since the Blue Devils' 95-92 overtime win in 2001.
