The empire will bounce back in a major way next season. John Calipari has assembled arguably the greatest recruiting class in the history of college basketball.
Tuesday night’s showdown with the Golden Gophers is the beginning of a pivotal nine-day stretch for Florida State. The Seminoles also host Florida next Wednesday, December 5, in Tallahassee.

The Wildcats have annually landed the nation’s top recruits since Calipari’s arrival in 2009 and it looks like their 2013 class could be the best in college basketball history.
