Kentucky may have the best backcourt in the country, with Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray having fantastic seasons, but the Wildcats' frontcourt hasn't quite matched this season. UK has lost two of its last three games, dropping games to Texas A&M and Vanderbilt. Kentucky was out-rebounded in both contests. UK has been without one of its key forwards, junior Derek Willis, for two games after spraining his ankle against the Aggies. During today's SEC teleconference, Calipari gave an update on Willis' status.
