No. 8 Kentucky maturing, more challenges ahead for freshmen

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Kentucky coach John Calipari hasn't hidden his frustration about the learning curve of his latest group of talented freshmen.

And while the No. 8 Wildcats are starting play better, they're bracing for more challenges ahead.

Kentucky has struggled to put away opponents such as Utah Valley, Vermont, Troy and Harvard, efforts that players and Calipari acknowledge have contributed to a perceived lack of national respect. On the other hand, their lone loss - a 65-61 setback to Kansas - showed their ability to compete with college basketball's heavyweights.
