Kentucky is back on top, but getting there hasn't been the Wildcats' problem. Staying has been the tricky part. The Wildcats (19-1, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) are the new No. 1 in the Associated Press and USA Today/ESPN coaches polls, their second stint in the top spot this season and their third in three seasons under coach John Calipari. But Kentucky's grip on the top spot has been tenuous. The Cats are 3-2 as the No. 1-ranked team under Calipari, who is 44-7 in his career when coaching the No. 1-ranked team.
