Notes on the Wildcats: Kentucky starts three freshmen from their #1 recruiting class and all three score in double figures...two of them are from Alabama...the 'Cats have tremendous size; no one comes off their bench under 6'6"...every starter but Cousins is a threat from the arc...the 'Cats thrive on the offensive boards...their overall combination of size, skill, and raw talent is unlike anything we've seen all year, but they are young.
