The Kentucky Wildcats are 11-2 after their 83-61 win over Ole Miss that really wasn't even that close.

The best player on the floor this night was UK point guard Tyler Ulis, who dazzled the Rebels to the tune of 20 points, 10 assists and six steals. Fellow guard Jamal Murray knows how critical having a great floor general like Ulis makes life easier for everyone.

"He knows the proper positions. It’s easy when you have two point guards knowing where to go and where to be. We just play off each other. He does a great job of finding us."

Wildcats head coach John Calipari liked what he saw from his young team as they dominated Ole Miss, but would have liked to see more from Murray.

"He’s (Murray) still — I’m trying to explain degree of difficulty does not get you more points. Like the harder shot you try to take, there’s no four-pointers, unless you get fouled on a three-pointer. So, that’s a hard one for him. I’m trying to get him to just make easy plays."

As you can imagine, Rebels head coach Andy Kennedy was mighty impressed by the performance UK put on, especially when it came to Tyler Ulis.

"I watch a lot of basketball and I don’t want to misspeak, but I think he is the best point guard in college basketball is what I think. He has the ability to run that team."
