UK's loaded roster will making juggling lineups tricky for Coach Cal

When the Harrison twins, Willie Cauley-Stein, Dakari Johnson and a number of others opted to return to Kentucky for another season, head coach John Calipari knew he was stepping into unknown waters. Yes, Cal has had teams with upperclassmen before, but not of this nature and not when another star-studded recruiting class was on its way.
A five-star guard like Tyler Ulis will now battle a potential All-American in Andrew Harrison for minutes at point guard. Karl Towns, who’s projected by many as a 2015 NBA Draft lottery pick, will compete with a handful of other future first-rounders for playing time in the front court.
Mike DeCourcy from The Sporting News believes Coach Cal will have to be creative to make everyone happy and find lineups that work. KSTV laid out a plan for who we see as the guys most likely to play at each position.
