Senior guard Julius Mays has become UK’s go-to scorer in clutch situations, especially with the 35-second shot clock about to expire, as well as the team leader.
“He’s a wonderful young man. He made a statement to his teammates, what makes you and drives you? What is it for you? He came back and said, ‘I’m my mother’s only son and I refuse to fail,’” Kentucky coach John Calipari said. “These guys kind of (went) like, ‘What?’ What he’s done here now because he’s playing so well, but not only that because of what type of person he is, he has taken on that role of holding people accountable.
“He’s seeing the faces I see and the excuses I hear, he’s hearing the same stuff but it’s coming from him now, holding guys responsible. It’s been fun to see him try to develop over this and thank goodness he’s on this team because we didn’t … holding it together has been a job that he’s done.”
