As we saw in Sunday’s Blue-White game, Kentucky has a roster full of players who are more than capable of holding a starting role. But with so many options fighting for those spots, John Calipari may have a tough time narrowing it down to a starting five.
Right now, it could by anyone.
When asked if he has seen any individual separate himself from the pack, Calipari said, “I don’t know. It’s got to start happening and I may start one group of five and then maybe three different guys in the second half. May do that for a couple times just to feel this out and see what it looks like. But it appears as though we got 10 guys that can play, but they’re going to be guys that separate themselves into playing more.”
Cal said he went around and asked each player if they were willing to give up their minutes to someone else, to which they all said, ‘No.’
“So you got to take somebody’s minutes here,” Cal said. “And if someone’s better, they’re going to play more. Just how it is. It’s not communism. We’re not on the same page. And it challenges everybody to perform.”
