NCAA’s top-ranked Kentucky can thank the smallest player on its team for helping it survive its biggest challenge of non-conference play. Freshman Tyler Ulis (176 cm) provided a much-needed offensive spark in a battle between the nation’s two best defenses, leading the Kentucky Wildcats to a 58-50 road victory over previously undefeated fourth-ranked Louisville Cardinals. This impressive Kentucky victory will only generate more discussion over whether the Wildcats can go undefeated this season, especially since their biggest tests are now behind them. Kentucky (13-0) has now beaten Kansas, Texas and Louisville in non-league play, all of which were ranked in the top 10 when the Wildcats faced them. No SEC team is even in the Top 25 in either poll at this point, though Florida, Arkansas and LSU are each among those receiving votes.
