John Calipari warned reporters and fans all summer not to expect too much from his young Wildcats this season. He said this freshman class is not the same group as Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Co., who won a national championship.
He knew he didn’t have many veterans on his roster. He thought voters were crazy to put Kentucky in the top five – as the Wildcats were ranked No. 3 in both the preseason USA TODAY Sports coaches poll and the preseason Associated Press poll.
Now, it’s clear Calipari was right.
