I assume the starting 5 will be:What position does Khalil Whitney play? Uks depth has scared me away from selecting anyone on UK so far.
I’m assuming Whitney is a SF and will start up front with Montgomery and Richards? And his backups will be???? Allen when healthy, juzang, and brooks? Y’all are crazy deep.
1- Ashton Hagans
2- Tyrese Maxey
3- Kahlil Whitney
4- EJ Montgomery
5- Nick Richards
Off the bench, I think Nate Sestina, Keion Brooks, Johnny Juzang, and Immanuel Quickley will see plenty of time. Solid 9-man rotation. Most assume Maxey will lead the team in scoring. So the next most likely candidate for a solid #2 option would either be Hagans or Whitney. Not sure how it will all pan out, but UK often has very balanced scoring. In 10 years at UK, Cal has had 11 All-Americans. Odds are, at least one of his guy will be an All-American. With a top 5 team, it's possible you could see two.
