Tyler Ulis has six games with at least 20 points and five assists since Christmas. That is six times in eight games, a truly remarkable stretch for the Kentucky point guard.
But just how good is it, historically?
For a little perspective, John Wall didn’t have six 20-point, five-assist games in his 37-game career. What Ulis has done in eight games, Wall couldn’t do in one season. He only did it five times in 2009-10.
In fact, only two players have six 20-point, five-assist games in the last 20 years of Kentucky basketball. Ramel Bradley and Keith Bogans each did it six times over the course of their four-year careers.
Again, Ulis did it six times over the last month — and he has one more from earlier this season to bring his career number to seven. That’s the most in the last two decades in Lexington:

Keith Bogans: 6 (135 games played)
Ramel Bradley: 6 (128 games played)
