Is Kentucky the best team in the league?
"They are certainly very good. I would put them right up there with some of the best I?have seen, yes, particularly on the defensive end. I think they are outstanding. I think this Kentucky team is as good as a lot of the really really good teams, great teams I have seen in our league the years I have been in it. I would expect they would continue to do very well and have a great chance to make a run at the national championship
Can Kentucky run the table in the SEC?
"I think it is very, very difficult actually. I don't recall it being done one time since I have been in the league which would speak to the difficulty of it. Because of the way they defend, they have a chance to do it. They are really a terrific defensive team. They are a good offensive team, but their defense gives them a chance to win every night. It was disappointing to lose to Kentucky, but we lost to a great team."
Can Anthony Davis sweep the national awards?
"I would be surprised if there was anybody out there who was any better. I can't profess to say I study all the top players or who would be the best candidates for player of year but I have a hard time believing anybody could have more impact on the success of a team than Anthony Davis is and that would be whether it is a freshman or any other classification. I can't imagine a more impactful defensive player in all of college basketball than he is. I would not be surprised in the least if he swept all the awards, and he would be very deserving."
