Kentucky's title gives way to uncertain future

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - It took 14 years for Kentucky to reach
title No. 8. To repeat, the Wildcats' magic number may be seven.

That's how many players coach John Calipari could lose from his
roster that helped him win his first national championship. Only
freshman forward Kyle Wiltjer is certain to return from the regular
rotation.

Now that the confetti has been collected and the banner unfurled
at Rupp Arena, it's time for the talent exodus to the NBA while
fans debate where this team ranks among Lexington's other title
teams.

Kentucky loses seniors Darius Miller and seldom-used Eloy
Vargas. The rest - freshmen Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
and Marquis Teague and sophomores Doron Lamb and Terrence Jones are weighing their options on turning pro.
