Kentucky Basketball: Full Preview, Predictions and Storylines for 2012-13

Ho-hum. Just another year for John Calipari and the University of Kentucky.

The Wildcats, led by mostly freshmen and sophomores, won 38 games, the SEC regular season title and a national championship in 2011-12. Just two weeks later, Calipari's entire starting five declared for the NBA draft, joining senior Darius Miller to round out the departure of the top-six scorers.

That might serve as a roadblock for some programs, but for Kentucky, it was just an expected speed bump. 

The return of sophomore Kyle Wiltjer, a former 5-star recruit, combined with the No. 2 ranked recruiting class in the nation (according to ESPN) has the Wildcats ranked No. 3 and primed for a run at the first repeat championship since Florida did it in 2006 and 2007. 

Let's take a look at what's in store for yet another rebuilding-but-not-really-rebuilding year for Calipari and the 'Cats.
