They're about to dominate next season.

Plus side for UK this year is, we only lose maybe three. Next year may be our most experienced team ever under Cal.

Fast fact though....

UK players in the NBA have out earned Duke players in the NBA by a wide, wide, wide, wide, wide margin.

Kentucky did it back in the day.

In 2013, UK had the #2, #5, #6, #9, #10, and #18 players commit.

They won the title that season.

It would be wonderful to see Coach K have a recruiting scandal right before he finally retires. It won't happen but is live every second of it. No coincidence that Duke starts getting to recruits right after Jeff Capel became an assistant coach.

Its not sustainable though.

I see it at UK now, and its just now starting to catch up to Duke.

3 and 4 year guys don't stay around cause they're going to be constantly recruited over, so then you have to (almost literally) refill your roster every single season.

Even high rated guys who came in as freshmen that may not do well their initial season, for whatever reason, decide to transfer out after their second year because they're not going to get any playing time over stud freshmen.

But really, look at Duke... after Bagley, they're SUPER thin. There's no depth. That's how it is at UK now, too.

Teams like Nova recruit 3* players but spend four years grooming them to be contributors.

Yeah, I wonder if any team has tried a recruiting strategy that targets 1 or 2 McD all Americans and then a bunch of 4 stars who will stay 3 or 4 years. I guess UNC/Nova are close to that model and proven its success.
