You heard right Big Blue Nation! The Cats are pre-season ranked number 2 in the country. So all the conversations of we are down, or we will have a long season next year - please stop!!!
North Carolina is the only team ahead of us in the rankings at the moment.
2. Kentucky (38-1, 18-0 in 2014-15): As expected, coach John Calipari's roster was depleted by the NBA draft. Karl-Anthony Towns, Trey Lyles, Willie Cauley-Stein, Devin Booker, Dakari Johnson and Andrew Harrison and Aaron Harrison — the Wildcats' top seven scorers — are moving on. Reserves Tyler Ulis, Alex Poythress and Marcus Lee are the only holdovers. Calipari once again has reloaded with a stellar recruiting class, led by Skal Labissiere, No. 2 in the class of 2015 (via 247Sports), and elite point guard Isaiah Briscoe. Plus, Calipari turned to the junior college ranks to land Mychal Mulder, a sharpshooter that should fit in well in the backcourt.
