Here are 5 reasons why Kentucky looks like a national championship contender now

The Wildcats weren't competitive against Duke, lost to Seton Hall, and played several close games against lesser opponents.

John Calipari has settled on a starting lineup of Ashton Hagans, Tyler Herro, Keldon Johnson, P.J.

He's shooting 36.8 percent from deep on two attempts per game, which isn't heavy volume, but is enough to make defenses guard him out there.

He's still only shooting 34 percent from deep, but defenses respect him; Herro has gravity, and that makes the game easier for everyone else on the floor.

He's constantly in motion in the half court, whipping around screens and always causing defenders to pay attention to him.

Hagans' increased playing time makes a huge difference, but this has a lot to do with effort and discipline.
