Kentucky entered this season with 1966 victories, # 1 all-time in NCAA history, and ahead of # 2 North Carolina by 16 wins. The # 1 ranked Tar Heels have cut the lead in half in less than a season and trail now by only eight. With no NCAA bid in sight, do Kentucky players realize the special place they continue to hold in history each time they take the court?

The Rolls-Royce of college basketball has always been the Kentucky Wildcats. But with four consecutive years fielding an unranked team, losing to the # 205 RPI team in the nation at home, and likely to miss the NCAA tournament field for the first time in eighteen years, the "check engine" light is burning brightly.

Kentucky avoided the let down that is always possible coming off a big win, taking care of business during their trip to Athens, Georgia, coming away with a 23-point victory, which saw Coach Gillispie use his bench extensively in the final five minutes of play.

Recently former Kentucky All-American Kenny "Sky" Walker had the opportunity to watch the current edition of the Kentucky Wildcats play a little preseason ball. Read Kenny's observations and thoughts on some of the returning Cats in this final installment of a three part series.

My biggest concern about Kentucky after watching the two exhibition games would be if UK had to go against a big, strong, physical team with a great inside presence. Patrick Patterson is playing well, but he's only a freshman and it's tough to be an enforcer and have the type of toughness that I think we will need against Louisville, North Carolina and SEC teams. So that is a concern.
