The Impact of 2009-10 on UK’s All-Time Statistics

Kentucky is 34-2 with an SEC regular season title, an SEC tournament title, some All-Americans and a great opportunity at a run to the national championship game.

It’s difficult to have a great season without great players and 2009-10 Kentucky has great players on the roster. Let’s explore the impact that some of this team’s players have had on the all-time statistical books at UK.
