      I love how detailed this is.

      I agree with most of your predictions, but some of the numbers look a little high to me.

      Six steals in a game would put Ashton Hagans among the all-time greats at UK.

      Hagans averaging 4.1 turnovers seems way high to me. Wall, who could be a turnover machine and played at a million miles an hour, wasn't even there.

      On Cal's best teams he's had a ferocious rebounder. Cousins. Harrellson. Davis. Jones. Towns. You would hope Reid Travis can be closer to 10 boards per if he's going to lead the team.

      Also think that PJ Washington probably starts all the way through with Montgomery as the 6th man. Though I think Montgomery could have a shot to be our best player. You might see a Darius Miller type of situation with Washington stepping behind Montgomery and coming off the bench, but I don't think that happens. Don't think it matters though as I think they'll both play about the same number of minutes.

      I think Kentucky will lose 4 or 5 games. It's going to be a tough SEC and I believe UK will drop four games in conference, but win the league.

      #1 seed. And from there anything can happen.

      Roster-wise only Kansas is Kentucky's superior.

          And yeah the Hagans turnovers were high.....edited those a little.

          Reid is a great rebounder and if needed could average way mkre than that, but I think he wont need too with PJ, EJ, and Keldon all making hefty contributions there.

              I know. Six still seems high...but Rondo and Wayne Turner both had 8 in a game. Which is sort of incredible.
