What's to like: Kentucky doesn't have a player with more enthusiasm or playmaking ability. He can handle the ball and score as shown by the 21 points and nine assists he had against South Carolina last season. He led UK in scoring eight times last year and led the team in assists in 19 games. His defense has improved and it was a vast change last year when he took more charges than anyone on the team.
