2. Kentucky

Stop us if you've heard this one before: Kentucky has a really great freshman class. The 4-for-4, as they could be called -- four freshmen, four McDonald's All-Americans -- indeed form an impressive quartet of talent. Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist give UK two long, athletic forwards; Marquis Teague is the latest in a long line of rookie point guards to study under John Calipari; and Kyle Wiltjer is strong from the outside. But if last season's Final Four run taught the Wildcats anything, it is that they can't do it with freshmen alone. When Josh Harrellson and DeAndre Liggins took control a year ago, the Cats surged. It will be up to senior Darius Miller and sophomores Terrence Jones and Doron Lamb to do the same.
