Sporting News ranks Kentucky preseason No. 4

Kentucky LogoYesterday it was its preseason All-America team. Today it’s the preseason top 25.  Sporting News revealed its preseason top 25 on Tuesday, placing ’s team at No. 4. A season after winning the national championship but losing six of their top players, Sporting News predicts that the Cats will once again be in the hunt for a national championship.  “With Kentucky, the thing to do is trust that coach has attracted enough talent to replace the truckload that just left of the program. It’s also safe to assume he will find the correct formula to mix the players he has gathered into a championship contender. It’s conceivable the Wildcats eventually will hit a snag, and if ever that’s going to happen, it’s now, with a point guard in who never was considered an elite prospect. But who’s betting against them?” —
