I always like it when the preseason predictions are released. Kentucky is my number one pick--not a surprise--to win it all. We have to make sure that Kelenna Azubuike comes back for his senior year. Don't forget that we just signed another seven-footer from Scott County!
What's Dick Vitale think?
Coach Tubby Smith's team will return four starters, and with the year of experience together, they should be even stronger. The Wildcats just missed the Final Four this year, losing in double overtime in the Elite Eight. Point guard Rajon Rondo and big man Randolph Morris will return as super sophomores, and guards Patrick Sparks and Kelenna Azubuike also will return. Watch out! The fans of Big Blue in Lexington could be celebrating in Indianapolis at this time next year!
