ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale said Tuesday that he does not believe a freshman-oriented team like Kentucky’s can win a national championship.
“I debated this with John Calipari,” Vitale said on a ESPN teleconference. “I don’t think you can win a national championship with a re-loading of the roster. You can win a lot of games.”
Of course, Kentucky re-loaded its roster after five players were taken in the first round of this year’s NBA Draft.
Calipari’s response to Vitale’s contention?
“Obviously, he’s going to disagree with me,” Vitale said. “John Calipari is thinking of one thing: win, win, win.”
