Nerlens Noel was the best player on the UK basketball team last season.  That’s something we all know.  It was obvious.  But when Noel went down, Solid Blue fans got to see more of Willie Cauley-Stein’s potential.

A former football player turned basketball star who also used to spend a good deal of time on the tennis court has dramatically improved his game on the hardwood.

From the afterthought in last year’s recruiting class to arguably the key to next season"s run at the program’s ninth national title, WCS could have been a first round pick…likely taken before Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress in this summer’s NBA draft.

But just how good has Cauley-Stein gotten in just a few weeks since the end of the 2012-13 campaign and how much better can he still get?

Noel on that in the video.
