Kentucky’s 5-foot-9 point guard Tyler Ulis scored 30 points, dished out 5 assists, and grabbed 3 steals in the Wildcats’ 82–77 overtime win over Texas A&M, but it was his apparent cheap shot at an Aggies player during a loose ball play, just before halftime, that’s made the highlight reel.

Ulis appears to kick Texas A&M guard Jalen Jones in the neck during the exchange. No foul was called on the play.

With the win Ulis, the SEC’s Player of the Year, and Kentucky get an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament—a tournament they’ve thrived in historically.
The Wildcats have made the Final Four in four of the past five seasons—including 2012, when the Anthony Davis-led team won the title.
