It's obvious to most that UK basketball will be playing with a stacked deck going into the 2014-2015 season. Like before, I beg you not to start the conversation of 40-0, just don't do it. I digress.
To some experts, UK's starting 5 will be the #1 team in the country, while there next 5 off the bench could be the #12 team. High praises, and very intriguing. I was asked today on twitter, when WCS and Trey Lyles are healthy, what will the starting five be for Kentucky? I don't like to follow the path most travel, but it seems to me this starting five will be as named.
You can make a case for Poythress and for some matchups, he may be in the 3 spot, but as for now, the lineup from above will be the starting five! No one under 6'6, lookout!
Strong showing against #1 Miss St, brings the Cats some respect. What is notable from this defeat is the attention Patrick Towles will recieve after out dueling a Hesiman hopeful.
