For most of this season there was a beautiful stat about Tyler Ulis. Despite missing a game, Ulis led Kentucky in minutes played.
Well friends, we can’t say that anymore. Thanks to Jamal Murray playing 33 minutes last night against Missouri, we have a tie. Ulis and Murray, who look so happy in the picture above, are now tied playing 681 minutes so far this season.
In all seriousness it’s one of the beautiful things of having a guy like Tyler on your team. With the type of defense Ulis provides, he rarely gets in foul trouble, allowing him to play 35-36 minutes a game. This is going to be something to continue to watch down the stretch of the season to see what happens if Ulis gets in foul trouble or if he simply gets tired from playing all these minutes. My gut tells me he won’t get tired, but just something to keep an eye for.
