John Calipari’s best guards have all been defensively elite. Wall, Fox, Ulis, even Shai Gilgeous-Alexander showed some defensive prowess during his time at Kentucky. Hagans was sold to UK fans as a defensive-minded guard. Over the course of the season, he showed that he could keep up with the best and most experienced guards in the country. Kentucky Wildcats legend, Rex Chapman, believes Hagans defensive potential may transcend more than the John Calipari era:

At one point in the season, Hagans was being considered a late first-round pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. His play eventually tapered out and he was not considered a draft pick this year. If he continues to show out on defense, it will be hard for some teams to not take a chance on him in the league next season.

As Hagans develops and starts to become more consistent taking care of the ball on offense he will really start to bloom. Part of that development also includes a better three-point shot. With the line moving back to international standards, it may be more difficult for Hagans to really show improvement in that area.

Just last month, Andy Katz of NCAA.com released a list of the most important players in the SEC.

Ashton Hagans was No. 1 on that list, as he has the ability to elevate his game and lead his team to a national title. On Monday, Katz began announcing his top 25 players in the country, and Hagans checked in at No. 23.
