LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Willie Cauley-Stein has become quite comfortable hosting block parties around the basket for third-ranked Kentucky.
The Wildcats' 7-foot sophomore has blocked 20 shots the past three games, including a career-best nine rejections on Sunday against Providence. Cauley-Stein enters Friday night's game against No. 20 Baylor (7-1) in Arlington, Texas, with 31 blocks. He is averaging 3.9 blocks per contest along with 9.6 points and 8.4 rebounds.
Cauley-Stein said against Providence he was just doing "what I'm supposed to do. It was more natural, and I wasn't really thinking about anything that I was doing."
