Jay Bilas’ annual college basketball preview dropped this morning at ESPN and The Bilastrator is high on the 2020-21 Kentucky Wildcats. Bilas included Kentucky on his list of nine national title favorites thanks to another crop of incredibly talented freshmen.

“Damn, the Wildcats have some talented young players,” Bilas wrote. “Ridiculous. B.J. Boston, Terrence Clarke, Devin Askew and Isaiah Jackson can turn Kentucky into a title contender by the end of the season.”

Also on that list: Gonzaga, Baylor, Villanova, Iowa, Duke, Virginia, Wisconsin, and North Carolina. Bilas included Boston, Clarke, and Askew on his list of Impact Freshmen, gave Boston Preseason All-American honorable mention, and tabbed senior Olivier Sarr as one of the most underrated and under-appreciated players in America.

Because he’s Bilas and this is 2020, he also included a list of binge-worthy TV shows and delivery food on the road; Lexington’s Dudley’s on Short made the latter.
