Thanks to Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray, Kentucky basketball enjoyed a record-breaking season in 2016 and The Cats’ Pause is here to celebrate the accomplishments of those players and also look ahead to 2017 with interviews with next year’s group of incoming freshmen, the nation’s No. 1 recruiting class for John Calipari.
In our “Cats’ Pause 2016 Kentucky Basketball Season Celebration” a collectible 136-page, full color book coming in April, we offer extensive features on Ulis, Murray and many other players.
Ulis shattered John Wall’s record for assists in a single season with 246 assists. He was also named All-American and won SEC Player of the Year, SEC Defensive Player of the Year and SEC Tournament MVP. Murray, an All-SEC, All-SEC Tourney and freshman All-American, smashed the school record for points scored by a freshman with 720. He also made 113 3-pointers, another freshmen school record and second most all-time at UK.
We also look ahead to 2017 with profiles on Bam Adebayo, De’Aaron Fox, Malik Monk, Sasha Killeya-Jones and Wenyen Gabriel, complete with the players’ own thoughts on playing at Kentucky.
Lastly, we look back on the 2015-16 basketball season, highlighted by the SEC Tournament championship, won in thrilling fashion over Texas A&M in overtime. We offer recaps on all 36 games, boxscores from every game and more than 200 photos from Big Blue Madness through the final game in Des Moines.
