UK Men’s Basketball

Kentucky men’s basketball sophomore point guard Tyler Ulis is one of 20 players on the John R. Wooden Award Late Season Top 20 list, announced Wednesday by the Los Angeles Athletic Club. The Wooden Award is presented annually to the top player in college basketball. Ulis has had a spectacular sophomore season in leading Kentucky to an 18-6 record and 8-3 mark in the Southeastern Conference. He’s one of two SEC players on the list. The 5-foot-9 guard is averaging 16.2 points, a team-best 6.4 assists per game – which ranks second in the SEC – and boasts an SEC-best 3.4 assist-to-turnover ratio. He’s scored 20 or more points in nine of his last 13 games, averaging 19.5 points and 7.3 assists while shooting 50.6 percent over that stretch.

The 10-man Wooden Award All-American Team will be announced the week of the Elite Eight round of the NCAA Tournament, and the 40th annual presentation of the award will be the anchor presentation of the ESPN College Basketball Awards Show, which will take place the weekend of April 7-9.

UK Women’s Basketball

After being named to the 2015-16 Naismith Trophy Women’s College Player of the Year Early Season Watch List in December, Kentucky women’s basketball junior guard Makayla Epps has been selected to the Midseason 30 on Wednesday. From the 30 athletes on the midseason watch list, the field will be cut to 10 semifinalists on March 3. The four finalists will be announced on March 18, and the Naismith Trophy Women’s College Player of the Year will be announced during the NCAA Women’s Final Four on April 4. The winner is determined by a board of selectors in conjunction with fan voting. The Naismith Women’s College Player of the Year presented by AT&T will be awarded on April 4, 2016, in Indianapolis.

Epps is the first Wildcat to make the midseason watch list since two-time Southeastern Conference Player of the Year A’dia Mathies earned the distinction in 2013. Epps recently became the 31st member of Kentucky’s 1,000-point club. She is averaging 17.0 points per game while handing out 4.6 assists per contest.

State College Basketball

The Colonels are 14-12 overall and 5-6 in the OVC. They've won two straight following their loss to MSU, both on the road, at TSU and at Belmont.
