The Kentucky Freshmen Are Proving Themselves

Way back at the beginning of the NCAA season, people had the Kentucky Wildcats ranked as the number one team in college basketball. After the season started and people got to see this group together, the Wildcats weren’t seen as highly. Soon enough they were considered overrated, and not exactly one of the top teams in the basketball. By time the NCAA Tournament rolled out, Kentucky was pretty much underrated and was ranked 8th in the Midwest division of the tournament.

Now let’s fast forward to present time. The Kentucky Wildcats pretty much proved throughout the tournament that they were rightfully ranked high at the beginning of the season by successfully making it all the way to the Final Four. These guys really are doing their thing as they have taken out three of the four teams that were in the Final Four last year. Kentucky successfully knocked out Witicha State, Louisville and Michigan and now will take on Wisconsin this weekend. Beating majority of last years Final Four teams was impressive but the fact that Kentucky’s entire starting unit are freshmen is even more impressive.

Lead by Julius Randle, these Wildcats now have the chance to win the entire tournament. Randle, who is like a more athletic Zach Randolph, has been a straight beast in the tournament. Randle scores in the paint at a top notch level and crashes the boards very well. If any player has boosted their stock in the tournament it is Julius Randle. Also with the Harrison twins making big plays and hitting big shots, they also have boosted their potential as well.

This Kentucky team has really impressed in the NCAA Tournament. This freshmen team might really be able to win the whole thing.

I watch every sport (not so much golf) but I am huge on the NBA. My favorite players right now are J.R. Smith, Russell Westbrook & Nick Young. Drinking beer and watching sports is my favorite past time and I do it year round! I used to play basketball on the regular until everyone else kept growing and I still stood at 5'6. So that's when I channeled my efforts into becoming the next Stephen A Smith or anything close to that.
