In UK’s 68-51 topping of Texas A&M on Tuesday night, Cauley-Stein logged all of nine minutes on the Rupp Arena floor, his briefest playing time since he was afforded just four minutes against Texas A&M in UK’s overtime win last year at College Station.
In fact, that was the third-fewest minutes Cauley-Stein has played in a game during his two-year UK career. He played just six minutes against Duke in the Georgia Dome on Nov. 13, 2012.
