The 2015-16 Kentucky Wildcats could’ve rode their three headed backcourt monster of Tyler Ulis, Jamal Murray and Isaiah Briscoe throughout a long NCAA Tournament run. However, John Calipari’s squad was held back by an unassertive and weak front court.
That won’t be a problem for Calipari and company moving forward though. This year’s interior pieces possess a combination of power and skill, while the Wildcats are already prepping for the 2017-18 season.
As a matter of fact, the 2017-18 Wildcats could have the program’s best one-two front court punch since Karl Anthony-Towns and Willie Cauley-Stein back in 2014-15.
Those two pieces, Nick Richards and P.J. Washington, both committed to the SEC powerhouse on Thursday as part of the early basketball signing period.
