LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - There were many moments during Wednesday night's Blue-White scrimmage where Kentucky's freshmen justified the lofty expectations placed upon them.

Archie Goodwin showed some flash while scoring a game-high 32 points. Willie Cauley-Stein was a formidable post presence with 14 points and 12 rebounds.

Swingman Alex Poythress added 25 points with quickness and athleticism.

A sore back slowed highly touted forward Nerlens Noel, but the point was seeing how this foursome played together and with others in their first competitive appearance before the Wildcats faithful. Early returns were encouraging, as they contributed to both teams in a game won by the Blue 89-88.

However, the bottom line is meeting John Calipari's high standards and the Wildcats coach quickly noted that this is a work in progress.
