Kentucky Wildcats HORSE Challenge sees Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray win thriller

New, 3 comments

A thrilling affair came right down to the wire before Tyler Ulis sunk the game-winning shot.

You may recall how All-American candidates and Kentucky Wildcats players Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray challenged the Big Blue Nation to a game of HORSE.

Fans were given the chance to submit their best shots and see if either UK's star guards could match it. Given how well those two have been playing lately, there weren't going to be many shots that fans could make and Ulis or Murray not be able to replicate.

Together, the dynamic duo is averaging more combined points in conference play (41.1 ppg) than any other tandem in the major conferences. Even with their amazing play, some fans managed to make some challenging shots that the two Cats were unable to match.

Here is a look at how they fared:

After the Cats took Game 1, the fans stormed back to win Game 2 and tie everything up and force a decisive Game 3.

But from there, Uis and Murray would take control before Ulis hit the game-winning half-court heave, to which John Robic simply called, "buckets!"

Buckets indeed.
