In Billy Gillispie's second game as coach of the winningest program in college basketball history, No. 20 Kentucky fell behind 14-0 and trailed by at least seven the rest of the way in a home loss to tiny Gardner-Webb, which finished 9-21 the previous season. "A lot of people are going to think this is a misprint," Bulldogs coach Rick Scruggs said.
