Congratulations to Tyler Ulis, who was named one of ten finalists for the Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year Award by the Naismith Hall of Fame this morning. Ulis has been on a tear lately, averaging 20.1 points and 7.1 assists over the last ten games. He’s had nine games this season with at least 20 points and at least five assists, the most by a Wildcat since they started recording assist statistics in 1972-73.

I can’t get enough, so here are some more of Ulis’ accomplishments from UK:

  • He’s the third player at UK since 1972-73 — and the first since Roger Harden in 1985-86 — with at least four assists in 14 consecutive games in a season
  • He’s the first UK player with 26 points and eight assists in a game since Jack Givens posted 27 points and eight assists vs. Auburn on Feb. 23, 1976
  • He needed just 17 games to top 100 assists in a season, the sixth-fastest pace in program history for 100 or more assists in a single year

Here’s the complete list of Cousy Award finalists:

  • Kyle Collinsworth, Brigham Young University
  • Yogi Ferrell, Indiana
  • Monte Morris, Iowa State
  • Tyler Ulis, Kentucky
  • Melo Trimble, Maryland
  • Demetrius Jackson, Notre Dame
  • Khalil Felder, Oakland
  • Gary Payton, Jr., Oregon State
  • Kris Dunn, Providence
  • Nic Moore, Southern Methodist

Simply put, he’s the best.

Ulis-GOAT

    When Tyler came to the sideline in overtime after the second turnover, Cal said something to him, not in anger, but almost like you gave it your best shot. Has anyone picked up what the exchange was in any of the pressers?
