Coach John Calipara has a decision to make. Which platoon does he start and which one does he play second? Kentucky joins UCLA, UNLV, and North Carolina as the only schools to be named the preseason number one in two consecutive seasons going from Geonoso\\\\\\\'s stats. However, this team is so talented and deep they could occupy the top two spots in the polls. Coach Cal has already mentioned going with a platoon system.

This year’s blueprint changed with a few surprise decisions last spring. Normally Coach Cal recruits a bumper crop of McDonald All-Americans each year that leave for the NBA after one season. But freshman backcourt twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison decided to stay in school and junior big man Willie Cauley-Stein returned as well. Joining them is the usual bumper crop making these Wildcats ridiculously good.

It isn’t far-fetched that the toughest competition these Wildcats will face was in their Blue/White scrimmage at the beginning of the season. This squad is 12 deep and expects every player to contribute. They play tough interior defense and have several weapons that can score. After falling short in the title game last year, these hungry Wildcats are just ready to play someone besides each other.
