From Jon Rothstein of CBSSports.com: “After coming to Lexington a year and a half ago as one of the more highly decorated high school recruits in the country, Poythress has taken a lesser role as a sophomore thanks to the Wildcats’ star studded freshman class. But Kentucky wouldn’t be playing for a title without him. The 6-9 forward has turned into a terrific role player for Kentucky and had eight points and seven rebounds in Saturday’s win over Wisconsin. Poythress has also made several key plays down the stretch in previous wins against Louisville and Michigan and always seems to be around the ball in crunch time. A blue chip freshman to a sophomore glue guy? Sounds about right.
