LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Former Kentucky star DeMarcus Cousins enjoys the perks of being a professional basketball player, namely making enough money to buy a house for his mother.

Yet there's a part of the Sacramento Kings rookie center that wishes he'd returned for his sophomore season with the Wildcats.

Cousins spent Wednesday working at coach John Calipari's Pro Camp, interacting with youngsters while catching himself watching video highlights of Kentucky's remarkable season. The Wildcats won 35 games and captured the Southeastern Conference title before falling one game short of the Final Four.

He was named the league's Rookie of the Month for his play in the Las Vegas Summer League. Cousins averaged 16.2 points and 10.6 rebounds in five games.
