Assigned Reading: UK's recruiting might be too good

New, 1 comment

As we pass deadline day for underclassmen withdrawing from the NBA Draft, The Lexington Herald-Leader's Mark Story reports on what we all have been chatting about the past few weeks regarding Kentucky basketball: that the Wildcats are fast becoming nothing more than a short-term haven for top flight one-and-donners.

It's too bad, really, but with John Calipari branding himself as a purveyor of NBA ready point guards who simply need something to do before becoming elgible to play in The League, it's clear this is the direction the program is headed in.

Now five seasons into the one-and-done rule, Story offers some nice statistics on blue-chip laden teams, suggesting that UK's approach probably isn't going to lead to One Shining Moment.
