The Kentucky Wildcats are a very good college basketball team. In fact, they're so good, that John Calipari's bunch has talent that some may think is already NBA-ready. Because of that, there is plenty of reason to believe that some UK players -- freshmen even -- will make the jump to the NBA following the college season. That's the way Kentucky continues to business, and it doesn't look like that will change any time soon. NESN.com's college basketball coverage is presented by Bodava.net

Except for movie night, Calipari having a ball

John Calipari is having a ball. Well, except for movie night. The coach of top-seeded Kentucky has avoided watching other games during the NCAA tournament, and he wants his players to do the same. His message: Focus on us and don't worry about other teams. So far, it's working just fine. The Wildcats (35-2) are one win away from a return trip to the Final Four. They'...

Mom: Kidd-Gilchrist not decided on draft

Kentucky star freshman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is widely projected to be selected as a top-five pick if he enters for the NBA Draft this year, but his mother said Thursday that her son had not made up his mind about leaving school.

No lack of tradition in this regional semifinal

At Kentucky, the bar is set a lot higher than most places. National championship or bust. On Friday night, the Wildcats will be matched in an NCAA regional semifinal against one of the few college basketball programs that can give them a run when it comes to passion and tradition.

Indiana-Kentucky Sweet 16 Postgame Show

One of the most memorable seasons in my 20+ years as an avid Indiana basketball fan ended last night when the Hoosiers fell 102-90 to the Kentucky Wildcats. Kentucky has a more talented roster and they played better overall – especially on the glass and from the free throw line – so they deserved to win. Just as Indiana was the better team in December, Kentucky was the better...

Calipari: It ‘wasn’t a buzzer-beater game’

Whenever December’s Indiana- Kentucky game comes up, everybody talks about Christian Watford’s buzzer-beating shot. It was the way the game ended, and it’s only natural to remember what happened last. Plus, ESPN has shown the replay of the shot countless times ever since, making it nearly impossible for anyone to forget it. The Wildcats certainly haven’t. “We see it a lot...

Kentucky’s free throws prove to be the difference

When Indiana upset then-No. 1 Kentucky at Assembly Hall on Dec.10, Wildcats coach John Calipari pointed to his team’s missed free throws as a reason for their loss. Kentucky made only 10-of-17 shots from the charity stripe that day, while the Hoosiers missed only three of their 17 attempts. Friday night’s Sweet 16 rematch was a different story. No. 1 seed Kentucky made a blistering...

Baylor-Kentucky Preview

John Calipari is having a ball coaching Kentucky. Well, except for movie night. Calipari has avoided watching other games during the NCAA tournament, and he wants his players to do the same.
