08:11 AM ET 02.29 | Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, a perfect candidate for a one-and-done college career, is talking about shocking the world. [Kidd-Gilchrist], a former McDonald's All American, is averaging 12 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.1 blocks per game for the top-ranked Wildcats, who've won 20 consecutive games. He's one of five finalists for the Wayman Tisdale Award, given annually to the nation's best freshman. ... That's why it was so strange for Kidd-Gilchrist to tell reporters after Saturday's game: "I'm graduating here. I'm not going anywhere. I'm staying at Kentucky." When those around him laughed, he added, "I'm dead serious. I don't know why y'all laughing."

Would be a breath of fresh air for the world of college basketball for someone to actually attend class for 4 consecutive years!
