Kentucky will have one heck of a time trying to go undefeated next season.
The Wildcats lost their bid for perfection in a Final Four loss to Wisconsin last Saturday. On Thursday, seven Kentucky players with eligibility still remaining — four of which are freshmen — declared their intent to enter the 2015 NBA draft.
Yes, seven players. On a 16-man roster...
A 40–0 season and an NCAA championship would have been the cherry on top of the sundae for Kentucky coach John Calipari, but even winning the title would not have given him the credit he deserves. With a roster full of McDonald’s All-Americans, winning the championship is expected. Anything less and he’s considered a failure.
