One of the best back courts in recent memory for the Kentucky Wildcats are continuing their dominance at the professional level, and it comes with no surprise.

While the BBN was busy watching Big Blue Madness last night, Jamal Murray and Tyler Ulis were pivotal in their team’s performances in preseason NBA action.

Jamal Murray shot extremely well in the OT loss to Golden State, dropping 16 points on 3/7 shooting from behind the arc, to go along with five rebounds, seven assists, and two steals. Though he filled the stat sheet, his development at the point guard position is what is grabbing major attention from media and fans across the nation. Here are just a few tweets sent out following the impressive performance:

Though Jamal Murray stole a bunch of the hype, Tyler Ulis more than held his own for the Phoenix Suns in the 112-107 victory over the Mavericks. He had a smooth stat line of 14 points, two rebounds, and two assists, and continued to show development as his minutes progress and experience comes with each game.

In practice a few days ago, Ulis was one of several former Wildcats participating in a little 3-point competition:

Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight also scored in double figures for the Suns, with Bledsoe scoring 17 on 3/7 shooting and 9/9 from the FT line, and Knight scoring 11 on 4/1o shooting.

I think this all-UK back court for Phoenix is going to work out just fine.

    KSR should do a betting pool for which Cat on the roster gets drafted by the Suns next.
