A worrisome note for the rest of the country: Kentucky is playing its best basketball of the season down the stretch.

The Wildcats may not be as loaded as last year’s near-perfect team, but John Calipari’s squad still has the talent–especially in the backcourt–to make a third-consecutive Final Four run if they’re at the top of their game as they were in the SEC tournament.

As a No. 4 seed, they’ll begin that run with a Round of 64 matchup against Jameel Warney and No. 13 Stony Brook.
