After Kentucky survived against Wichita State Sunday, a lot of attention was given to the way De’Aaron Fox, Malik Monk and Bam Adebayo played, especially late in the game. However, not nearly enough attention was given to Derek Willis.
Remember he’s the senior who has been blasted by coach John Calipari for three years and often criticized both by fans and the media for his lack of defense. However, he’s a big reason UK not only won Sunday, but also has won 13 straight games.
