What a milestone.

TyTy Washington Drew Brown - Sea of Blue

In his very first game as Kentucky’s starting point guard, filling in while Sahvir Wheeler is injured, freshman TyTy Washington not only performed at a high level, but set an all-time school record.

Against Georgia on Saturday, Washington broke John Wall’s single game assist record of 16 with 17 of his own.

Wheeler will absolutely be back in that role when he is healthy, but it is always fun to see records broken, and it’s great to know that someone can fill in at the point guard position when needed.
