The 2012-13 Kentucky Wildcats have no template for the upcoming season. They are looking to forge their own path in college basketball next year.
This team will rely on new faces, just like every John Calipari team, but those faces won't belong to just freshmen.
Six players on the 2012-13 team played for the 2012 national champions. Two more player will be added to the rotation that have played college basketball elsewhere: Ryan Harrow and Julius Mays.
Add four freshmen and you get a 12-man roster: Seven returnees, five newcomers.
So what will the statistics look like for this contingent of athletes?
As a teaser, here are my predictions for team totals for the Kentucky Wildcats next year: 76.1 points per game, 38.4 rebounds per game, 13.4 assists per game and 7.7 blocks per game.
Minutes per game add up to an even 200, although end-of-year averages rarely hit that mark.
Statistics will be as follows: MPG (Minutes Per Game), PPG (Points Per Game), RPG (Rebounds Per Game), APG (Assists Per Game), BPG (Blocks Per Game)
