op-ranked Kentucky knows each one of its last five SEC opponents wants to be the team that knocks the Wildcats off.
To prevent their first loss, as good as the Wildcats have been, they'll need to be better – particularly when it comes to finishing off foes.
Though Kentucky (26-0, 13-0) has successfully absorbed everyone's best shot, coach John Calipari wants his team to be the aggressors working up to delivering the knockout punch.
First up down the stretch run is Auburn (12-14, 4-9) on Saturday night. The Wildcats will be looking to build on their effort in Tuesday's 66-48 victory at Tennessee. Calipari was pleased with how Kentucky regrouped after some early struggles.
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
