Tyler Ulis scored a career-high 30 points, including Kentucky's final point on a free throw with 8.7 seconds left to help the Wildcats to an 82-77 victory over Texas A & M in the Southeastern Conference Tourney Final.

Derek Willis's 3-pointer with 1:01 left in overtime put Kentucky ahead to stay, and the 16th-ranked Wildcats beat No. 17 Texas A&M 82-77 in overtime on Sunday for their second straight Southeastern Conference Tournament championship and 29th overall.

These teams split the regular season title after the Aggies edged Kentucky in College Station in overtime on Feb. 20. But SEC Tournament titles are treasured by Kentucky faithful, and the Wildcats (26-8) gave fans yet another to celebrate in a game they have lost only 10 times in the program's storied history.

Jamal Murray added 17 points, and Willis, Alex Poythress and Isaiah Briscoe all finished with 10.
