Kentucky basketball is used to winning SEC titles, both regular-season and conference tournament ones. In fact, it's more of a surprise to SEC fans when any team besides Kentucky wins a conference title.
The Wildcats have won a record 28 conference tournaments as well as 47 regular-season titles. But, after a down year in 2012-13, Big Blue Nation is ready to add to those numbers. Will it be easy for Kentucky to do that?
No. Florida is expected to be a top-10 team this year.
Will Kentucky be the favorites?
Yes. It wouldn't surprise anyone to see the Wildcats win their second national title under John Calipari.
The first step toward that ninth NCAA title, though, is to win a 29th SEC tournament or a 48th regular-season crown.
But, why not silence all the critics and win all three?
