Nation's most talented team
Plus a look at Ashley's absence at Arizona and the most trustworthy shooter
Each week during the college basketball season, ESPN Insiders Jay Bilas and Jeff Goodman will weigh in on the biggest questions of the sport.
The discussion: Which team is the nation's most talented?
Jeff Goodman: It's not all that long ago that some were debating whether Kentucky's highly regarded freshman class should be put in the same conversation with the Fab Five (I was not one of those people), but the group as a whole has been somewhat disappointing. Julius Randle has been as good as advertised, James Young and Aaron Harrison both have been fairly consistent scoring threats, but Willie Cauley-Stein has been up and down and Andrew Harrison has rarely looked like one of the top point guards in the country. Alex Poythress has been effective at times, but he is hardly the lottery pick that some predicted a little more than a year ago.
