1. When asked about his new team, Shabazz said "It's a challenge, knowing how bad they were these last two years." That quote may come back to haunt him if Kentucky makes it to another Final Four and he's stuck dominating the NIT next year.
3. Even if the Cats miss out on Noel, Calipari has assured fans that next season would not be canceled. Kentucky's current crop of recruits is definitely nothing to sneeze at and the possibility remains that some of the underclassmen may not declare for the NBA draft.
