PG: Tyler Ulis – The driving force for next year’s team, Ullis’ leadership and experience from last year will be crucial to Kentucky’s success next year.
SG: Isaiah Briscoe – Having two strong ball-handlers at the point guard and shooting guard position will be a benefit.
SF: Charles Mathews – A top 50 recruit, Mathews should get the nod over Mulder/Willis even with his lack of experience.
PF: Alex Poythress – Kentucky could go big and slide Poythress to the three and add Marcus Lee to the starting rotation. However, having a solid big come off the bench and Poythress playing down low would probably be preferred.
C: Skal Labissierre – The No. 1 recruit in the 2016 class, Labissierre should be a force to be reckoned with next year in the SEC.
6th man: Marcus Lee PF/C
7th man: Mychal Mulder SG
8th man: Dominque Hawkins PG/SG
9th man: Derek Willis SF/PF
