Cal says he’s going to build a team around Tyler Ulis


John Calipari said Kentucky could lose as many as seven players to the NBA, but there’s still plenty to look forward to. According to Kyle Tucker, Cal texted Tyler Ulis last night to tell him he’s going to build a team around him.

Cal added that he anticipates Alex Poythress will also return, but will still gather feedback on him from the NBA.

I’d be lying if I said a Tyler Ulis-centric team didn’t make me smile right now.

    Well, that tells you everything you need to know about the Harrison’s leaving…

      That’s a little surprising to me. Most all draft projections show Andrew late in first round or early second, and Aaron slipping to late second round / undrafted, and I can’t imagine this last game did anything to improve that. Sounds to me that they just made their minds up to be done with college.

      Or it could be that Kyle Tucker is passing along something that isn’t true. It would just seem to make more sense if the Harrisons were projected 1st round picks. Who knows, though. I just think anything said by anyone regarding their future plans at this point should probably be taken with a grain of salt until they have had a chance to actually consider the pros and cons.

    y only concern with Tyler Ulis is his defense against a taller guard, or when they switch off and he end up being posted up by a taller player. That to me is his one vulnerability. Aside from that, he is as solid as they come.

      I doubt we switch as often next year as we did this year. So hopefully his lack of height won’t be as easy to take advantage of….Then again, I thought he did a great job of denying the post even when he was down low with a bigger player this year.

    OK this makes me Happy, this and a few bud lights. I am officially over the loss (I’m still in the denial stage)–Seriously this is a bad man with a heart of a lion, already looking forward to next year. I hope Booker and Lyles stay…..

    I have thought for quite some time that Tyler Ulis would make an excellent TEAM CAPTAIN. He definitely turned out to be my favorite. He is a well spoken young man just like the rest of the Cats. I am glad Cal doesn’t recruit THUGS.

    For what it’s worth, Ulis finished the season with the 3rd best Assist/Turnover ratio in the entire NCAA, as well as in the Top 20 in 3pt%!! Forget his lack of height….the kid may have put together the BEST stats for a PG in the entire country THIS year!!

    I wish Cal had thought of this at 4 minutes and a 4 point lead, just sayin…
