Kentucky is still very much a work in progress. Getting consistently strong efforts from Alex Poythress would certainly help the process along.

The 14th-ranked Wildcats look for a more efficient performance when they try to beat visiting Mississippi State for the ninth straight time Tuesday night.
Poythress bounced back from one of his least-productive games of the season with an offensive outburst, scoring a career-high 25 points in Saturday’s 77-61 win at Alabama.
He went 8 of 10 from the field in a much more aggressive effort after attempting three shots and scoring four points in last Tuesday’s 85-67 loss at LSU.
”You just have to get that bad taste out of everybody’s mouth when you have a difficult game,” Poythress said.
