In one of the deepest rosters in college basketball history, Coach Cal was able to accomplished his real goal and that is to groom these young proteges to potential NBA superstars for the long run.
“We had a a meeting to start the year. I told them ‘I’m on a mission this year. To have 8 players with a chance to be drafted’ ” -Coach Cal — Kentucky Basketball (@KentuckyMBB) April 9, 2015
Expect Karl-Anthony Towns to be the first one being drafted as a potential lottery pick thanks to his outstanding performance during the NCAA tournament. The Jersey native averaged 10 PPG, 7 RPG in which his 7″0 height span along with this tenacity on the defensive side have NBA scouts drooling to bring him to their franchise. As for Coach Cal, his next agenda is to show America why he is a hall of famer by displaying his excellent skill in recruiting the nation’s best to carry on Wildcat tradition. Good luck to the rest of the former Wildcats as they’re one step closer to achieving their lifelong dream and that is to suit up for a NBA team.
