No. 11 Kentucky wants to rebound vs. Boise State

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky has several weaknesses to fix in a short period of time.

The No. 11 Wildcats (7-2) blew a nine-point lead in the final 13 minutes of a 67-62 loss to No. 14 Baylor Friday night. Several aspects of their game were exposed and need strengthening before playing unbeaten Boise State (8-0) Tuesday night.

Kentucky appeared to be in sync a week ago after beating Providence.

But the young Wildcats were out-rebounded for the first time this season, perhaps the most glaring breakdown against Baylor. Kentucky also struggled at the foul line, didn't box out at times and failed to make a steal.

Players and coach John Calipari say the breakdowns were due to a lack of concentration, which must improve against the Broncos and at North Carolina on Saturday.
