During the first half, sophomore guard Tyler Ulis was attempting to go for a loose ball on the ground, but a Bulls player dove at the ball and inadvertently landed on Ulis arm, causing it to slightly bend backwards. Ulis was immediately favoring the arm before heading to the locker room to be further examined.
The team has since announced it was a right arm injury that was being further evaluated:

We'll keep you posted if there are any updates on this, but the Cats are certainly holding their breaths as their star point guard gets his arm examined. If he's out for an extended period of time, it would be a huge blow to the No. 1 team in college basketball.
As the second half began, Ulis was not on the court warming up with the team, and his return is being called questionable due to an elbow injury:

Ulis' day is done, though it doesn't sound like anything that will keep him sidelined for too long:

Ulis is also back on the sideline with his arm wrapped, and I would venture to guess he doesn't play Monday vs Illinois State.
