The time has come for Lee and Poythress to shine

Much has been made of the seven Kentucky Wildcats who left Lexington early this season to declare together for the NBA Draft.

Not only did they make up more than half of the team but were also the seven leading scorers from the 2014-2015 squad.

Head coach John Calipari will once again rely on returning role players and a top recruiting class to reload another championship contender, and he’s already tabbed upperclassmen Marcus Lee and Alex Poythress as next season’s leaders.

“I’m so anxious to get [Alex Poythress] and Marcus Lee on the court,” said Calipari at the Adolph Rupp Coach of the Year ceremony on Thursday, “because it’s their time now. This is their time.”

How will Lee and Poythress respond in the fall when it’s their time to shine?

The KSTV crew broke it down, expecting big things from both players.
