Kentucky's Tyler Ulis Named Finalist for the Bob Cousy Award

Kentucky's Tyler Ulis has been tabbed as one of 10 finalists for the Bob Cousy Award.

The Cousy Award is given annually to college basketball's top point guard.

Here are some of Ulis' accolades this season:

• He’s the third player at UK since 1972-73 – and the first since Roger Harden in 1985-86 – with at least four assists in 14 consecutive games in a season

• He’s the first UK player with 26 points and eight assists in a game since Jack Givens posted 27 points and eight assists vs. Auburn on Feb. 23, 1976

• He needed just 17 games to top 100 assists in a season, the sixth-fastest pace in program history for 100 or more assists in a single year

Ulis is already a two-time winner of the SEC Player of the Week award and is on the midseason watch lists for the Oscar Robertson Trophy and the John R. Wooden Award, each given to the national player of the year.
