Kentucky Basketball: Midseason Report Cards for the Wildcats' Freshmen
Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

It has been a tumultuous season for the Kentucky basketball freshmen. With their 87-74 win over No. 16 Ole Miss, the Wildcats have shown they are capable of hanging with tournament teams.

As it stands, however, John Calipari's squad still has work to do.

He has relied on four freshmen to lead his young team, and the season has gone as one might expect when teenagers are relied upon to lead a college basketball team.

Talented as they are, these inexperienced Wildcats have shown immaturity and a lack of poise, even in home games.

The win at Ole Miss was a giant step in the right direction. However, these freshmen haven't always built on quality wins, evident in their Jan. 22 loss at Alabama.

Are they the freshmen we expected this season? Probably not.

Can they be the freshmen we expected? Absolutely.

Here are my midseason grades for the four freshmen Wildcats.
