Tom's Take: radio show recap

ESPN college basketball reporter Andy Katz was bullish on the Big Blue in today's appearance on "The Leach Report" show:

"This Kentucky team only has to be as good as the rest of the country this year.  So to compare this team to the previous teams under Cal is a moot point.  This team definitely could have a say in what happens in March.  Tomorrow night against Florida and the second game against Florida, we're going to learn a lot more about whether this team can be a factor in March.  Clearly that win at Ole Miss was a game changer for Kentucky.  Everything is pointing in the right direction for this Kentucky team to make a higher move. 

To rule out Kentucky would be foolish.  They are with a bunch of other teams that people are not projecting to win the national championship and they definitely can--doesn't mean they win, but they can, because they've got the ability to get hot and win a bunch of games and they can be a matchup problem for a lot of teams."

We also talked with Florida radio network analyst Mark Wise and he said the loss of reserve forward Will Yeguete to a knee injury could have a significant impact on the Gators' defense.  He says Yeguete is Florida's most versatile defender, with the ability to guard both post players and perimeter opponents.  Wise says the Gators excel at keeping opponents out of the middle of the floor and when opposing players get to the lane, Patric Young has become a much better shotblocker than last season.
