David Schuh of thinks so.  From David:  “James Young is UK’s best player.

He many not be the most NBA-ready or the most athletic, but night in and night out, he proves why he is the player the Cats need the most.

Wednesday night was a perfect example. After nearly notching a double-double by halftime, Young made plays all over the court, finishing with 26 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals in an 85-63 win over Mississippi State University.

He plays more minutes than anyone else. He takes more shots than anyone else. His presence is felt all over the court, more consistently than anyone else.”
