After being noticeably absent from the Top 25 since early December (the first time EVER under Coach Cal), the Cats seem to be fighting their way back into the national spotlight. Okay, because its UK and they’re defending national champs, Cal’s team has never left the national spotlight. But certainly, the UK basketball team is gaining some credibility back after a rough patch.
The first evidence of a potential re-entry into the Top 25 happened this evening – Seth Davis ranked the Cats at No. 19 on this Top 25 list this week. See the tweet above for confirmation. Also, if you are curious about his upper- list order, here are best five squads in the country according to Seth:
3. Duke (before they nearly lost tonight)
4. Michigan State
The Cardinals checked in at No. 14 after their 5OT loss to Notre Dame. Here’s to hoping the Cats take out Florida this Tuesday and really bolster their resume heading into the home stretch of the SEC season.
