Kentucky's Willie Cauley-Stein tweets he'll return for junior year
A likely first-round pick, the man they call "WCS" will play a third season at Kentucky.
Monday gave us two surprising decisions in the state of Kentucky.
And a few hours later, Kentucky sophomore center Willie Cauley-Stein did this:
I'm proud to say I'm coming back for my junior year. I still have an empty spot to fulfill and in no rush to leave the best fans in the USA!— Willie Cauley-Stein (@THEwillieCS15) April 14, 2014
Kentucky, who we already put at No. 7 in our Ridiculously Early Preseason Top 25 (and one), might well be considered a preseason top five team in many outlets by next fall. Cauley-Stein is one of the few true centers in college hoops. He was felled in the Sweet 16 by a foot injury that kept him out for the remainder of Kentucky's NCAA Tournament run.
The Wildcats lost a week ago in the national title game to Connecticut.
Earlier on Monday, UK John Calipari said on radio that he couldn't figure how Kentucky even managed to get so far in the NCAAs without Cauley-Stein's availability.
