Last week, when we published these Power Rankings, I went in-depth on why Buddy Hield’s hold on the National Player of the Year Award is not quite as firm as some may make it out to be.
Denzel Valentine is right there with him.
And, at this point, I think that Tyler Ulis is probably closer than a lot of people may realize to cracking that top two. He still has some work left to do to really be in consideration — and that’s mainly a result of how much he, and Kentucky, struggled earlier in the year — but since the turn of the calendar, Ulis has been sensational.
Anyway, that will be explained a bit more in his blurb below.
