Entering their Final Four game against the Wisconsin Badgers, John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats are 38-0. In the season’s final regular season rankings, they were a unanimous No. 1 in both the AP and USA Today Coaches polls. Kentucky has won their four tournament games by an average of 19.25 points. That’s not a new trend, either; of their 38 wins this year, 31 came by double digits. And in nbadraft.net’s latest 2015 Mock Draft, four Wildcats are projected as first-round picks, with another three projected second-rounders.

With a 100-98 loss to the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday night, the New York Knicks are now an NBA-worst 14-61 this season. They are one of only two teams in the NBA with less than 10 home wins, and have an NBA-low five wins on the road. The Knicks are being outscored by 9.6 points per game – again, worst in the NBA – and haven’t won a game by more than 10 points since Feb. 1. (Then again, they’ve only won a total of five games since Feb. 1.) In that Wednesday night game against the Nets, nine Knicks players saw game time. Of those nine players, three were first-round picks, three second-round picks and three were undrafted.

You know where we’re going with this.

Former NBA player and SiriusXM NBA Radio host Jerry Stackhouse begged the question earlier this week: If the Wildcats played the Knicks, who would win? Stackhouse’s pick:

That’s who [Kentucky] would beat right now, because [the Knicks are] losing by 30 to teams in the NBA with consistency. On any given night, you don’t know when you can look up and see the Knicks down 20, 25-30 points. I definitely see that team that Kentucky has right now could do a number on the New York Knicks in the state that they’re in right now.

Do you agree with Stack? Or do you think a team of NBA veterans would easily beat a college team? Tweet your thoughts @SiriusXMNBA.
