#9 Seed: John Calipari's young Kentucky Wildcats entered the 2010/11 dance as a 4 seed, and kicked it up a notch.  After some early season learning curve issues, Kentucky's freshman caught fire and began to jell. By the end of the campaign, Cal's young Cat's ultimately took out the 2011 overall #1 tournament seed Ohio State in their Sweet 16 matchup. These young Wildcats were led by freshman sensation Brandon Knight. UK  fell to eventual national champions Connecticut in the Final Four, courtesy of some poor shooting that was epidemic for teams in Houston that weekend.  Kentucky's Wildcats came roaring back in 2011/12 with a new class of freshman to win the whole smash.
