The Kentucky Wildcats’ basketball team is really good, no? The team has consistently competed for the NCAA championship year in and year out. Head coach John Calipari is entering his seventh season with the Wildcats and in just six years, he has been in four Final Fours, played for two championships, and has won one.
He did all this because he constantly has some of the best players in the country playing for his team. According to College Spun, Calipari thinks the 2015-16 season will be no different. He was quoted as saying that his team has the best point guards in the country per Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio.
Calipari says that Tyler Ulis will be best guard in the country, unless it is Jamal Murray

The Wildcats and Duke Blue Devils battled all summer long for the number one recruiting class for 2015. While the Blue Devils won out when it comes to Rivals and ESPN, the Wildcats had the best class according to 247Sports.
Of their eight signees, three of the Wildcats’ freshmen were five-star recruits. Jamal Murray was one of those five-star guys and in 2014, Tyler Ulis was a five-star recruit as well.
It’s going to be pretty tough replacing guys like Aaron and Andrew Harrison or Devon Booker, but I’m sure Calipari knows exactly what he is doing. He will certainly have his guys on the right track once November rolls around.
The Wildcats tipoff their season on November 13 when they host Albany.
