LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The John Calipari Era has begun at Kentucky.
Kentucky freshman Eric Bledsoe scored 24 points while starting in place of John Wall, and the fourth-ranked Wildcats opened with a 75-59 win over Morehead State. Patrick Patterson added 20 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.
Wall, a highly touted recruit for Calipari, sat out as part of an NCAA suspension for accepting improper benefits from his AAU coach.
Wall is expected to play Monday when the Wildcats host Miami of Ohio.
