Kentucky Center Alex Poythress Out for Season with Torn ACL

Kentucky Center Alex Poythress Out for Season with Torn ACL Mitchell Layton/Getty Images(LEXINGTON, Ky.) -- The top ranked Kentucky Wildcats have plenty of depth, but they're platoon system has taken a big hit as junior forward Alex Poythress tore his ACL during practice on Thursday and will miss the rest of the season. Part of the reason the Wildcats have been so successful this season is the use of two units, almost like hockey, and Poythress was a big part of that. "When you're coaching other people's children and these children have high aspirations and unlimited potential -- not only to do things for themselves but for other people -- I can't begin to tell you the feeling when someone gets hurt," coach John Calipari said in a release. "My own son, Brad, tore his ACL last year. All I can tell you is I was physically sick when it happened to him. I feel exactly the same way now that it's happened to Alex." In 20.3 minutes per game, Poythress was averaging 5.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per game. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Georgetown College Coach Thinks Kentucky Could Beat an NBA Team

Georgetown College Coach Thinks Kentucky Could Beat an NBA Team G. Fiume/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- With the college basketball season tipping off on Friday, after scrimmaging against top ranked Kentucky, Georgetown College head coach Chris Briggs came away very impressed. "Those guys are unreal," Briggs told reporters. "I told the guys in the locker room, [the Wildcats] could have beaten some NBA teams tonight. There's no question in my mind." The Wildcats are expected to be among college basketball's elite this season with players like Karl-Anthony Towns, Aaron and Andrew Harrison, Willie Cauley-Stein, and others set for big seasons. Despite the praise from Briggs, Kentucky head coach John Calipari was quick to dismiss his claims. "I hear Coach Briggs got excited after the game last night. Let me be clear: If we played ANY NBA team, we would get buried. ANY," Calipari tweeted on Monday night. Kentucky went 29-11 last season, but ultimately lost to UCONN in the National Title game. They open the season Friday against Grand Canyon. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
