On a drizzling afternoon this week, Kentucky Coach John Calipari stood on a practice court and reminded his players that nothing comes easy. “Do you understand me?” he said. “Are you listening?” These have been heady times for Kentucky. Ranked No. 1, with a 6-0 record, it has all seemed so easy so far for Calipari's squad. Especially considering that the Wildcats are led by three highly regarded freshmen — point guard Marquis Teague, power forward Anthony Davis and small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist — whose careers have known only success.
