Coach Cal and the Cats tip off with Ole Miss tonight at 9 Eastern in Oxford.
UK will likely be without the services of big Willie Cauley-Stein and indefinitely without the service of guard Twany Beckham following a back procedure.
Kentucky has struggled to get off to fast starts, especially in the second half this season.
But the Cats are coming along. The problem for Cal and company though, it isn't happening fast enough.
Meanwhile, some teams are making great strides, mainly because they've been together for several years.
Ole Miss for example, is playing at its peak right now.
Check out the video for more from Coach Cal on his team becoming the best version of itself.
