Tyler Ulis Will Have His High School Jersey Retired

Phoenix Sun and former Kentucky point guard Tyler Ulis will be the first person to have his jersey hanging from the rafters at Chicago’s Marian Catholic High School.

Ulis will be honored Friday at halftime during Marian’s rivalry matchup.  The Suns will be in town to play the Bulls, but with the games going on at the same time, it’s safe to say it’s unlikely Ulis will be able to make it to his old stomping grounds.

Before Ulis was a consensus All-American, SEC Player (and Defensive Player) of the Year, Bob Cousy Award winner and a second round selection by the Suns, he earned McDonald’s All-American honors in high school.  Hw rewrote the record books during his time at Marian to become the school’s leader in points (2,335) and assists (578).

Before he was a star at Marian, he was a tiny headache for Andrew Harrison on the AAU circuit.

      Not if, but when they lose to Arkansas they will be out of Top 25 for good. We don’t need to worry about rankings. Need to worry about missing tournament.

      I think they will have 9-10 losses before selection day and be a 7-10 seed. No im not a Cards fan. Our resume is poor. 3-4 really bad losses and 1 decent victory. If more teams keep losing 5-6.

      Our football program stinks and will always stink. Who would want to play for us? It gets old that kids say the school they decommit from is a top their list. Just shut up and say I will NOT be going to UK

      Here comes another 2-10 season everyone. I predict 3 straight seasons without an sec win. Next years team may even be worse than this team. Everyone thinks barker is the golden child savior. Hilarious

      We suck so bad in football I really forgot that we were even playing a game at all until about 9. We are pathetic in every way possible.From the coaching to the players this football program is pathetic. Can we just take football away from the university It is pointless to play. The only thing our football program is good at is making a bad name for the university and making any team look awesome, How sad is it when your team cannot even win a conference game in 2 seasons. Absolute joke. laughing stock of all of football
