John Calipari joined his good friends Andy Katz and Seth Greenberg earlier this week for a segment on the ESPNU College Basketball Podcast to talk about his 2012-13 team. It's not a Harrison twins update, but it's the next best thing. Have some notes: -- Kentucky is the most inexperienced team in the country. Out of the 72 BCS schools, UK is the only one that doesn't have a returning player who started in one game last season. -- Ryan Harrow is more of the mold of a Brandon Knight. He's going to have to take on the role of a shooter/scorer. "He's a really good player." -- Leadership develops. The team captains will emerge; they won't talk about it. -- The surprise of the group is going to be Willie Cauley-Stein. "People are going to say, 'Who the heck is this guy'? -- The freshman who is playing the best right now is Archie Goodwin. "He's got a motor like Michael Kidd." -- Cal will be surprised if Wiltjer isn't scoring 14, 15, or 16 points per game. "I will be stunned if he's not." -- Jay-Z, Irv Gotti, and maybe Magic Johnson will be at the Maryland game. Drake is coming back to Rupp. "He asked for seats on the wood." Have a listen...
