Kentucky's Nick Richards after beating Texas Tech: 'It's a big-time win for us'

Top contributors

There is an expected learning curve that comes with replacing four starters, but three of Kentucky's returning players have anchored the Wildcats, showing impressive progression as sophomores and juniors while guiding a highly-touted group of freshmen.

Nick Richards had never logged 30 minutes in a game over his first two seasons. Now, the junior big man averages that nightly as Kentucky's top scorer and rebounder in addition to leading the SEC in field goal percentage. His presence on the low block has been a big boost on both ends as he also is among the conference's top shot blockers. 

Ashton Hagans blossomed in the second half of his freshman season. He's been able to build off that as a sophomore, adding to his defensive repertoire while establishing consistency on the offensive end. In becoming Kentucky's primary ball handler, Hagans' scoring, rebound and assist numbers are up significantly from a year ago, but the most notable change is a fearlessness to get to the rim and free throw line, where he averages close to six attempts per game.

Immanuel Quickley may only have nine starts through 20 games, but he's played the third most minutes for the Wildcats. Like Hagans, he added to his offensive framework by nearly tripling his per-game scoring and becoming more active on the glass. However, Quickley's biggest contribution in Year Two has been his much-improved perimeter shooting. The sophomore is converting at close to 40 percent.
