For the last few weeks, Kentucky’s most dependable rebounder has become junior Derek Willis. He’s also become a consistent third scorer behind Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray
“I’m really proud of him. He’s rebounding the ball. He’s getting better defensively. Still not there. But this team believes in him and he believes in himself more,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said after Tuesday’s win over Georgia.
Kentucky likely will need the best Willis has Saturday when it plays at South Carolina. A win could move UK to the top of the SEC.
