LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - John Calipari is hoping his young Kentucky Wildcats finally get the message after their latest lesson in what it takes to win .

His team appeared to be progressing from a disappointing nonconference showing. Then came Saturday's loss to Texas A&M - Kentucky's first at home in Southeastern Conference play under Calipari.

The Wildcats (10-5, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) believe there's time to regroup and fulfill expectations of winning another league title, and Tuesday night's game against Tennessee (8-6, 0-2) offers a good opportunity to reboot.

Calipari hopes that the 83-71 loss to the Aggies will finally help his young Wildcats squad understand and "buy in" to his philosophy of being successful through commitment, hustle and trust - traits Kentucky has sporadically demonstrated this season.
