A program that was built on the success of one coach and turned into a tradition that is one of the most coveted in the sport today. It has featured many All-Americans and many fantastic coaches. The Kentucky Wildcats have had 17 consensus All-Americans. Many of these players lead the Wildcats to a national title. The Wildcats have had 25 players be first round draft picks in the NBA. To win as many games as the Wildcats have it is reasonable to think they needed the players to do so.
I have created a list of the top 10 greatest Kentucky Wildcat basketball players. Players that, during their years, gave the most to the program while excelling on the hardwood. Please feel free to comment and give any feedback about what you think is right or, most importantly, wrong about this list!
