What does Georgia coach Mark Fox think of Kentucky guards Tyler Ulis, Jamal Murray and Isaiah Briscoe going into Tuesday night’s game in Rupp Arena. He says they are terrific.

“Ulis is so good with the basketball. He’s got great speed, he’s a wonderful decision maker, he makes the guys around him better, he can shoot the ball, he’s great off of a ball screen. His offensive game is very complete,” Fox said Monday on the SEC coaches’ teleconference.

“Then you put, for instance, Murray next to him, who is a terrific, terrific shooter, who’s great off the bounce, really good hand to hand on the dribble. Just a real natural knack to score the ball.”

What about Briscoe?

“And Briscoe with the high IQ and his ability to slash and drive and overpower you,” Fox said.

“I mean, I think that they have a real good chemistry between those three of them. And, along with that chemistry, they’ve got great skill sets. It’s a huge challenge, and they’re playing terrific. They’re playing just terrific.”
