No. 6 Kentucky learning how to play through mistakes

Jan. 11—Kentucky coach John Calipari talked about improving players' body language after UK's win over Missouri. Tre Mitchell said players being forward thinking in games is important. Rob Dillingham is learning the value of how he presents on the court if things aren't going right.

Kentucky rolled past Missouri in the last 14 minutes on the way to a 90-77 win at Rupp Arena on Tuesday. As the No. 6 Wildcats know, they want to keep on growing throughout this season where they're now 12-2.
