While driving back to Lexington from his team's 90-73 win over Indiana, Kentucky coach John Calipari said that he was thrilled with the way his team played.

"To come into that arena and have it not faze them, I'm so happy,'' Calipari said. "I wasn't sure if I was going to have to see who would fold and have to make moves. But our guys just balled. DeMarcus Cousins was terrific in the second half. Our guys didn't let the crowd get to us. We didn't celebrate. We just walked off the court. That's what we're trying to get instilled in them. We've still got a long way to go but that game there, wow.''

Calipari agreed that the Wildcats' next road game -- at Florida on Jan. 12 -- will be a "hard one,'' but is hopeful that the Wildcats' RPI will be high after a road win at Indiana.
