Every Tuesday, UK Athletics recognizes outstanding performances for our student-athletes. These are the honorees for the week ending Sunday, Nov. 11:
Men's basketball: Archie Goodwin
Scored 16 points in his collegiate debut which was the second-highest total on the team. Thirteen of his points came in the first half. He also connected on 9-of-11 free throws to lead the team. The 16 points in a debut ranks as the sixth-best start to a season for a freshman under John Calipari at Kentucky.
Men's basketball: Kyle Wiltjer
In his first career start, Kyle Wiltjer led the Wildcats with 19 points on 6-of-9 shooting including a 4-for-6 clip from 3-point range. The four 3-pointers ranks as a career high in addition to a career-high three swats. His 19 points are the most since scoring 24 against Loyola on Dec. 22, 2011. He scored 11 first half points to reach double-figures for just the sixth time in his career. He also sunk two free throws in a clutch situation (final three minutes in a six-point game).
