Kentucky will only go as far as Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray can take it

When John Calipari sleeps at night he probably dreams big. The University of Kentucky coach likely imagines having an athletic, large frontcourt centerpiece to anchor his championship hopes. Wouldn’t it be nice for the Wildcats to get instant low-post scoring? It sure would be great to have a terrorizing shot-blocking threat in the paint. Then Calipari wakes up and confronts his...

Kentucky has a depth problem, and the echoes of 2014 linger

Sure, John Calipari has never had a recruiting class ranked lower than second at Kentucky. It’s also true that whenever Calipari has struggled, he has usually been able to right the ship before it was too late. This dynamic was never more apparent than in 2014, when Calipari took an eighth-seeded team to the national championship game, and it took a seventh-seeded group from Connecticut...

John Calipari says Kentucky will “probably” lose to Kansas tonight

    Skal Labissiere, the jewel in the crown that is John Calipari’s 2015 recruiting class and a potential top pick in next year’s NBA Draft, has gotten off to an inauspicious start with Kentucky this season.
