Randle finished the season averaging 15 points per game and 10.4 rebounds per game. After a lackluster regular season, Randle's Wildcats ran through the NCAA Tournament field before finally succumbing to UConn in the national title game. In all probability, Randle won't be the only UK player to leave school early - we still have yet to hear from Andrew Harrison, Aaron Harrison, James Young and Willie Cauley-Stein, among others.
