Calipari was one of four coaches to receive "Coach of the Year" honors.  While accepting the award, he invited Tyler Ulis to the stage.  He said that Tyler coached this team too and handed him his award.  A stand-up move between a pair of stand-up guys.  The complete list of winners: Mr. and Miss Wildcat Callum Irving (men's soccer), Danielle Galyer (swimming ), Kelsey Nunley (softball), Kendra Harrison (women's track and field) Teams of the Year Men's Basketball, Men's Soccer and Women's Track and Field Athletes of the Year Danielle Galyer (swimming), Kendra Harrison (women's track and field),  Callum Irving (men's soccer) and Tyler Ulis Coaches of the Year Rachel Lawson (softball), Johan Cedegren (men's soccer), Edrick Floreal (track and field), and  John Calipari Mike Lyden Courage Award Shelby Hilton (gymnastics) #ShelbyStrong Rookies of the Year Jamal Murray and Sidney Dukes (gymnastics) Community Service Award  Landon Foster and Danielle Fitzgerald (women's soccer) Supporting Role Zach Strecker (baseball), Leah Nugent (women's track and field) Performance of the Year Kendra Harrison (women's track and field), Danielle Galyer (swimming), Tyler “Chip” McDaniel (men’s golf), Seb Masterton (swimming and diving) Bill Keightley Assist Award Blake Perkins and Brady Kennedy Blue Heart Award  Fred Allen Meyer (golf), Janee Thompson (women’s basketball) Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year Jackie Dallaire (women’s soccer), Sarah Harris (women’s golf) Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year Landon Foster (football) Academic Teams of the Year Women’s tennis, Men’s golf Scratch Award Charles Walker (football), Taylor Puryear (gymnastics) Heart of a Wildcat Kelsey Nunley (softball)
