Kentucky Basketball: Detailing How to Handle Ryan Harrow's Absence

One staple of nearly every team coached by John Calipari has been exceptional play at the point guard position.

During Calipari's tenure at Kentucky, the Wildcats have fielded teams led by John Wall, Brandon Knight and Marquis Teague, respectively.

And despite all of them being a true freshman during their one year at UK, each one eventually developed into a poised and exceptionally capable floor general by the time the NCAA tournament had rolled around.

That's why Ryan Harrow's recent (and troubling) absence from the team stands out even more than it usually would when a team loses one of it's starting players—it's the most important position on a team with a coach known for producing excellent results from the PG position.
