Kentucky may be losing its best frontcourt player to the NBA as the possible No. 1 pick, but UK will have even more options to replace Nerlens Noel's production next year.

"We're going to be much stronger physically at all positions," Calipari said of UK's frontcourt. "Our post presence will be there with Dakari Johnson and Marcus Lee. He's a lot like Nerlens in terms of blocking shots and going after balls. He's bouncy with great energy, but he's not as big. Willie is coming back with one thought in mind: He wants to do something on the basketball court and in the tournament. He's got something to prove to himself. He's got a great frame of mind. He understands he's got to do it and do something different.''
