A recent article from Hoopniks graded the natinon's top 25 freshmen on their on-court performance this season. Kentucky's four graded very well.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist stepped to the top of the class, and earned the top grade of "A+," tied with Indiana's Cody Zeller with the same grade. Might have to give the gold star to Zeller as Indiana won the head-to-head matchup, but Kidd-Gilchrist has taken a backseat to no freshmen this season.
Also earning an "A" on the season is Kentucky's phenomenal freshman forward Anthony Davis. Davis has shown incredible defensive presence, and averaging a double-double on the season, has contributed on both sides of the court.
With a solid grade of "B," Kentucky freshman PG Marquis Teague checked in. Teague has enjoyed a resurgence after a slow start this season, and if the grades were based solely on the second half of this season thus far, his grade likely would be higher.
Bringing up the rear of the Kentucky class, but with still a very good grade of "B-," is freshman Kyle Wiltjer. Wiltjer has taken a bit of a backseat so far this season, but has shined in certain moments during the season, including a 24-point outburst in Kentucky's last contest.
