Sahvir Wheeler is off to a hot start for his Kentucky basketball career.

The UK point guard has totaled 30 assists through three games, a record to start a Kentucky basketball career.

In addition to 30 assists, Wheeler has only turned the ball over eight times this season with seven of those coming in the first game vs. Duke.

“He is not losing his mind. Believe me, after the game he looked at me and said, ‘I had one turnover.’ He knows it’s important to me,” John Calipari said. “Who is it going to be important to? Him. We still have some guys that I’m telling them exactly what I want them to do and how to play, and they fight it a little bit, and it just hurts them and hurts us. He has totally bought into what I’m saying. Totally bought in.”
