Tyler Ulis Fires Back At Dan Dakich, Says He Didn’t Even Know Who He Was

Former Kentucky point guard Tyler Ulis had some choice words for Dan Dakich Friday afternoon, responding to his comments from early in the season that Ulis was not one of the top five point guards in college basketball. 

As college basketball fans know, Ulis was spectacular this past season, averaging 17.3 points and seven assists a game on the way to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Dakich, who's not afraid to troll Kentucky fans, handled it pretty well.

It's safe to say Dakich was wrong about Ulis, who took home the Bob Cousy Award given to the nation's top point guard.
