Mychal Mulder Hits Turning Point of Season?
Canadian wing Mychal Mulder was a late addition to the Kentucky roster, as part of the 2015 class.
The Windsor, Ontario native held multiple NCAA offers, but couldn’t decline an opportunity with Coach Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats.
The Cats were looking for someone to help them spread the floor, as Mulder was a proven shooter at Vincennes (46% 3P).
But it has been a quiet season thus far for Mulder who is averaging only four minutes and under a point per game.
However, in Kentucky’s loss to LSU earlier this week, Mulder played a season-high 14 minutes, and delivered with his first real opportunity on the floor–five points and a team-high eight rebounds.
Mulder remained humble speaking with the media, and said that he will be ready to grab every opportunity “with two hands” as he did when rebounding the ball.
This performance could be a turning point in the junior guard’s season, as it sounds like more minutes are coming his way.
Following the LSU game, Calipari spoke highly of Mulder:
Cal on Mychal Mulder: I think he’s at the point of being in that 3-guard rotation. He did a great job rebounding. pic.twitter.com/bwil6l4feA
