LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach John Calipari's latest group of talented freshmen may have gotten a needed wake-up call on Monday - the defending champs fell out of the Top 25.
The Wildcats opened the season ranked No. 3, dropped to No. 8 and after back-to-back losses to unranked Notre Dame and Baylor, their 61-poll run ended. The stretch included 11 weeks at No. 1 under Calipari.
The coach hasn't seen the kind of commitment needed to get better but says there's nothing wrong that more gym time can't correct. Calipari has often said this freshmen class needs more time to develop than their predecessors.
Kentucky's 4-3 and Calipari wants his team to put in the work to improve. But he says he's not seeing many gym rats on his roster right now.
