No. 3 Kentucky reloads with 4 talented freshmen

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky lost six players from last year's national championship team and is again projected to be title contender this season.

Yes, Wildcats coach John Calipari signed another talented freshman class.

The high expectations remain after the Wildcats won their eighth title behind freshmen Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marquis Teague. All were first-round NBA draft picks along with Terrence Jones; Doron Lamb and Darius Miller went in the second round.

It's a tough act to follow for freshmen Nerlens Noel, Alex Poythress, Archie Goodwin and Willie Cauley-Stein - but Kentucky is ranked No. 3 in the preseason poll.

Nearly seven months after Calipari who his first title with a team anchored by underclassmen, he is eager to see if this group can go as far as their predecessors.
