Kentucky says that sophomore center Willie Cauley-Stein will miss 10-14 days with a minor right hand injury sustained during ''basketball activity'' on Friday.
Cauley-Stein played in 29 games last season with 14 starts, most coming after Nerlens Noel's season-ending left knee injury on Feb. 12. He finished the season averaging 8.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game and made the Southeastern Conference's all-rookie team.

Because Kentucky would need some sleight of hand and magic to beat Florida. And it sure helps when your kicker can hoof it like he's a running back.
The Wildcats pulled it off at the end of the first drive on Saturday night, converting a fake field goal for a touchdown when Joe Mansour...
The Kentucky Wildcats are nearly two touchdown underdogs against Florida in Lexington this week, but they are going to do everything in their power to pull off the upset.
