Jay Bilas shows Kentucky love in SLAM Magazine

Former Dukie and ESPN College Basketball analyst Jay Bilas was recently interviewed by SLAM Magazine previewing the 2011-12 college basketball season. Bilas is one of the most respected and well-spoken analyst that ESPN has to offer and helps make up the College Gameday Crew on Saturdays.

In the SLAM article, Bilas had some really strong words for the Cats this season after checking out practice in Lexington. Here’s what the big guy had to say about John Calipari’s team in his third season at Kentucky.

“ I do. Going into the season, I think North Carolina and Kentucky are the two best teams in the country. North Carolina has more experience, but Kentucky has equal, if not greater talent. I’ve watched both teams practice, and when you watch Kentucky practice, you’re just blown away by their talent level. They’re really good and they’ve got more experience returning this year then they did in the previous two. Yes, they lost Brandon Knight and a couple of seniors, but they have Darius Miller, Doron Lamb and Terrence Jones coming back; they’ve never had that kind of talent and experience returning since John [Calipari] has been there. Not only are they bringing in the nation’s best recruiting class—which is a stunning group of player from a talent perspective—but they also have a preseason first team All-American [Terrence Jones], and a guy, in Lamb, who’s capable of being first team All SEC and Kentucky’s top scorer. ”

Those are some pretty strong words in a question that asked about North Carolina. Now that could be the inner Dukie him deflecting attention from his former rival, but I also truly believe that Bilas believes in this Kentucky team.
