There won't be any platooning this season with Kentucky basketball, and that's not a bad thing. There still will be plenty of depth with at least an eight-man rotation for the 2015-16 version of the Wildcats, but you won't see any sort of blue/white platoon.
The one thing John Calipari has proven to do for his first six years in Lexington is stick with one starting lineup. However, he does a great job at making in-game adjustments to match with certain situations. When a team was quicker and substantially smaller than the Wildcats last season, it was likely that Dakari Johnson, a traditional slow-moving center, would spend more time on the bench.
The roster is loaded yet again in Lexington, with a good balance of returning players, transfers and incoming stars from high school. The slideshow will take a look at the best situational lineups for Kentucky in the 2015-16 season.
