Another week, another wave of honors for the Kentucky Wildcats, specifically star point guard Tyler Ulis.

On Monday, Ulis was named to the John R. Wooden Award All-America Team, which also makes him one of the top five finalists for the prestigious Wooden Award, which goes to the nation’s top player.

On Tuesday, Ulis added First-Team All-American honors from CBS Sports and the Associated Press. It's a well-deserved honor for the 5-9 ball of fury, who ended the season with 246 assists, setting the new single-season school record previously held by NBA All-Star John Wall.

Until the season's final game, Ulis also recorded a streak of 28 consecutive games with four or more assists, the longest streak in school history since at least 1972-73.

Here is a recap of honors Ulis has already received this postseason:

  • Sporting News All-America First Team
