Scouting Kentucky's early showcase

The 2014-15 Kentucky Wildcats are one of the biggest and deepest teams in recent history. In their first three exhibition games in the Bahamas this past week, 10 players averaged between 19 and 21 minutes per contest. Kentucky used a platoon system that wore down their opponents. Both units ran the same systems, but had very different personalities, both offensively and defensively.

While the level of competition wasn’t necessarily elite -- two games against the Puerto Rico national team reserves and one against French professional club Champagne Chalons-Reims -- it still gave observers a glimpse into what the team could potentially look like.
