Congratulations to Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray, who were just named SEC Player and Freshman of the Week, respectively. Ulis averaged 20.5 points, 10 assists, and 2.5 steals in UK’s wins over Georgia and South Carolina last week, while Murray averaged 25 points and 3.5 assists.
The league had nothing but praise for Ulis in their release.
“In a battle of two of the three SEC’s first-place teams and against all sorts of adversity, Ulis was simply dominant. After head coach John Calipari was ejected less than three minutes into the game, the assistant coaching staff gave Ulis the reins of the offense, and he answered with arguably the best game of his career and one of the top individual performances in the SEC this season.”
Yes it was. Let’s celebrate by watching Ulis and Murray’s highlights from South Carolina:
Best backcourt in the country, hands down.
