After the Kentucky Wildcats' exhausting 73-64 road win over Mississippi State on Tuesday night, the rest of the country was put on alert. This Wildcats team is John Calipari's best chance at a national championship since he put on the whistle in Lexington.
Kentucky is now an impressive 27-1 on the season, with their only blemish coming on the road in a hostile environment, facing a talented Indiana team which was peaking at that point in the season.
The team is undefeated in conference play at 13-0, dominating their Southeastern Conference opponents throughout the season. With only a week-and-a-half remaining in the regular season, the team's victory over the Bulldogs taught us five things about Kentucky's 2011-2012 team.
Each one of these valuable tidbits gives us reason to believe that Coach Cal's young studs are ready to give him his first title as a head basketball coach.
