Katie RichcreekFeatured ColumnistJanuary 10, 2016

Yes, that is one player physically picking up an opposing one.

No, you can't do that.

Kentucky guard Tyler Ulis tried to box out Jimmie Taylor in the second half of Saturday's game when the Alabama forward wrapped him up and flipped him sideways.

Taylor earned a foul for his actions, and Ulis hit the ensuing free throws to give Kentucky a 58-44 lead.

The No. 9 Wildcats went on to top the host Crimson Tide, 77-61.
