LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky's John Calipari says the Wildcats are so deep it feels like he is coaching two teams.
Besides returning six regulars from last year's NCAA runner-up squad, the Wildcats added four high school All-Americans and begin another season with expectations of another championship.
Their frontcourt returns 7-footers Willie Cauley-Stein and Dakari Johnson, along with forwards Marcus Lee and Alex Poythress.
Twin 6-6 guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison are back with their length, scoring and floor leadership in the backcourt. Add in recruits Karl-Anthony Towns (6-11), Trey Lyles (6-10), Devin Booker and Tyler Ulis, and the Wildcats could have a 12-player rotation.
With so much depth, Calipari vows to employ a platoon system to get the most out of players.
Calipari said during Thursday's media day, "I'm coaching two different teams."
