Tyler Ulis, the "Game Changer" in win over UNC

12/15/2014 07:54 PM

After missing two games due to illness last week, freshman Tyler Ulis came back against North Carolina with a bang… and wasn’t just his energy and effort either.

The box score Saturday saw a noticeable change in UK’s shooting column. After going 2 for 17 from deep against Columbia last Wednesday. The Cats finished 7 for 15 from three against the Tar Heels, and it all started with Ulis’ three-pointer early in the first half.

His confidence spilled over to Devin Booker, Aaron Harrison, and Trey Lyles who all lit it up from the floor. Ulis once again proved to be a floor general on the offense and a hound on the defensive end of the court.

One guy who took notice was UK head coach, John Calipari.
