Tyler Ulis continued his record-setting pace last night with 10 assists against Alabama, his fourth game with at least 10 assists in Kentucky’s last six games. The 10-assist game was his fifth of the season, moving him ahead of Kyle Macy, Roger Harden and John Wall for the school record for most 10-assist games in a single season.
But above all that, he continued his blistering pace to pass Wall for Kentucky’s single-season assist record. Ulis is currently 23 assists ahead of where Wall was through Wall’s first 27 games in 2009-10. If Ulis continues with his season average of seven per game, he will need only eight more games to pass Wall for the record. That can be done with a trip to the SEC Championship and two NCAA tournament games.
The record is in serious jeopardy.
