Kentucky's Tyler Ulis Had a Hard Time Staying Awake on Selection Sunday

While the rest of the college basketball world tuned in to Selection Sunday, Kentucky Wildcats star Tyler Ulis used the selection show as a way to catch up on some sleep.

Because nap time is more important than the bracket reveal, right?

As a result of their 82-77 overtime victory over the Texas A&M Aggies in the SEC Championship Game earlier in the day, the Wildcats were guaranteed a spot in the NCAA tournament. The only thing Kentucky didn't know is what seed it would be and which opponent it would face.

Ulis probably didn't care too much about any of the details. All he needs to know is when the Wildcats' next game is, and he'll be ready.

And to be fair to the sophomore guard, he had just finished dropping 30 points in an overtime victory in his third game in three days.

Rest up, young Wildcat. The NCAA tournament is upon us, and you're vital for Kentucky.
