LEXINGTON — The University of Kentucky men’s basketball team lost its top seven scorers from a historic 2014-15 squad, six of whom were selected in last Thursday’s 2015 NBA Draft — a new league record.

Nevertheless, the departing Cats did not leave the cupboards bare in Lexington for next season, and two of the of the more prominent returning players are sophomore guard Tyler Ulis and senior forward Alex Poythress.

KSTV caught up with both returning Wildcats at Camp Rondo in Louisville last weekend, talking with Ulis about becoming the undisputed backcourt leader with Andrew Harrison gone and with Poythress about his progressing rehab back from knee surgery.
