As you can see, there are a lot of Wildcats playing in the playoffs this year and only two series without a former Kentucky player. Half of the teams in this years playoffs have at least one Kentucky player on their roster. The chances of one of those guys getting a ring is very high (cough, Cousins, cough) .
