      New Preseason Top 25 Poll places UK at No. 6

      We’re still a ways away from the new college hoops season, but it’s never to early to gauge the landscape and where Kentucky stands in it. Most of the way-too-early polls thus far have had Kentucky checking in the 3-6 range. Gary Parrish of CBS Sports recently released his latest Top 25 (and one) poll for CBS Sports, and Parrish ranked Kentucky #6 in the nation.

      What has to happen for the NCAA to allow 5-star Marvin Bagley to play this season

      The major headline of the college hoops recruiting calendar came out of last week's Nike Peach Jam, when CBS Sports and 247Sports reported that No. 1 overall 2018 recruit Marvin Bagley III was exploring his option to reclassify to the Class of 2017. If he is able to do that, and be cleared by the NCAA's eligibility center, he can play college basketball this upcoming season.  Given how irrefutably talented Bagley is, such a move would alter the landscape of college hoops -- and change the top of the 2018 NBA Draft. Bagley, 18, has carried a stellar reputation as a pro prospect over the past two-plus years. A move to the Class of 2017 would likely prompt every mainstream mock draft service to
