UK assistant John Robic filled in for John Calipari during today’s pre-Mississippi State press conference and he had some high praise of his point guard, Tyler Ulis.
Robic told reporters, “We don’t have to teach Tyler a whole lot. He’s one of the smartest players I’ve been around in my 27, 28 years of coaching. He helps us sometimes.”
Robic added that he and the coaching staff are shocked on the rare occasion Ulis doesn’t make the right read. “Doing it and playing the majority of the minutes every game, it’s quite impressive.”
He also discussed Isaiah Briscoe’s shooting woes, what they were able to do against Alabama that didn’t work against LSU, the addition of Tai Wynyard and much, much more.
