The lone returning freshman from last season’s near-perfect Wildcats, the 5’ 9" Ulis emerged as the driving force and second-leading scorer (16.6 points per game) for a Kentucky team took longer than usual get up to speed. His 7.4 assists per game led the SEC, while his defense (1.4 steals) has caused opponents headaches.
