It’s nothing new to us, but it’s nice to see others appreciate just how spectacular Kentucky’s backcourt is playing. After struggling some on Saturday, Ulis, Murray and Briscoe proved last night that they deserve to be in the conversation as the best backcourt in the nation.
After first rolling with Maryland, then with Buddy Hield and Co. and Oklahoma, Jon Rothstein of CBS now believes that Kentucky’s guards are the best of the best.
Right now, the only way any logical compass can point when it comes to this topic is towards Kentucky and that was only reiterated by the way Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray played in Tuesday night’s 88-79 win at Florida.
The duo combined for 40 points, 15 assists, and 12 rebounds against the Gators and continue to complement each other like Al Pacino and Johnny Depp in Donnie Brasco.
Throw in Isaiah Briscoe’s 13 points, three assist, three-rebound performance in a supporting role and you’ve got a trio that’s built to compete against anybody.
I’d take those three against anybody. With a guard-dominated NCAA Tournament around the corner, it’s hard not be confident about the Cats.
