Luke Winn of SI.com does a fantastic job with his power rankings, which come out every Thursday. He breaks down his top-16 teams with some sort of advanced stat regarding a player, play or comparison. Well, after falling all the way to 31 a week ago, Kentucky flew up Winn’s board to No. 16.

The reason why? Well, besides blowouts it’s because of Tyler Ulis. Winn gives out that in SEC play Ulis has a 134.2 ORtg per KenPom and a 4:1 assist to turnover ratio with nearly 25% usage. Winn goes on to say outside of Denzel Valentine he doesn’t think there’s a point guard in the country having a better year and has made his way back into All-American talk.

Personally, I think Ulis is having an under appreciated year because Kentucky has been floating around the No. 20 rankings for a long time. On top of that heading into the year all we heard about from the point guard spot was Kris Dunn and Melo Trimble. This season by Ulis will be appreciated more after the fact, similar to Brandon Knight – especially by those that aren’t fans of Kentucky.

    Hands down the best point guard in the country!! Watch him and what he does, he’s basically a coach out there, directing people, holding people accountable every time they slip up, passing, shooting defending … I can go on and on. He’s the best point guard I’ve seen AT KENTUCKY, that includes J.Wall (He doesn’t have Wall’s squad). I don’t how that translates to the NBA but at the collegiate level he’s 5 foot 9 MONSTER.
