That Kentucky has a wealth of talent isn’t a news bulletin, but coach John Calipari said Friday his roster is so deep that he plans on using two five-man units to start the 2014-15 season.

“We didn’t have the players last year to do this,” Calipari told “We will have two 5-on-5 platoons and a guard sub and a big sub, and that puts you at 12. You’re working to get in the top 10. It means we have to play faster and have to press more. Who those two groups will be is going to unfold.”
