Kentucky Basketball: The Key to Each Incoming Freshman's 2015-16 Season

We know all about the mass exodus at Kentucky after last year's unbelievable 38-1 season, with the lone loss coming in the Final Four. While most programs would have a massive drop-off after losing their top seven players, the Wildcats are favorites to win the 2016 national championship thanks to another strong recruiting class.

John Calipari brought in four highly touted freshmen and a junior college recruit to balance out his roster, which still has Alex Poythress, Marcus Lee and Tyler Ulis returning. 

There's a good chance two or three of the incoming freshmen will only be in Lexington for a year, but all four players will be in the rotation for Calipari this season. Clearly, the first-year players will be particularly important, and Kentucky will ask each of them to do something specific to help the team improve upon last year’s championship miss.

With that in mind, let’s delve into the key for each freshman’s 2015-16 season.
