John Calipari is one of the luckiest coaches in the nation. Any of his top seven players can lead the Kentucky Wildcats in scoring on any given night. In the NCAA tournament, competition will be demanding of Cal's 7-deep squad. But some players are more fundamental to the Wildcats' success than others.
Anthony Davis anchors the Wildcats inside. Without him in the game, teams with any combination of size, skill and athleticism can score in the lane (see: first half, Ole Miss).
He has been an integral part of the Wildcats' 26-1 campaign and will be called upon just as much in the NCAA tournament.
But who else needs to be at the top of their game if Kentucky expects to bring Big Blue Nation No. 8?
Here are Anthony Davis and four other Wildcats integral to the hopes of this Kentucky team in the NCAA tournament.
