That ticking sound you hear is the Kentucky players' biographical clock. To hear Julius Mays, the Cats are well aware of the possibility of becoming the first John Calipari team since 2005 not to play in the NCAA Tournament. "I haven't heard much, but it's a thought in the back of your head," Mays said Friday. "I don't think we've really won a marquee game, and every big game that we've had we've kind of choked. As an older guy, it's in the back of my head. And I'm sure the young guys think the same thing."
