LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Archie Goodwin is Kentucky's leading scorer, hes been in double-figures in all but one game as a freshman. But when Goodwin goes 4-17 from the floor and misses as many layups as he missed Saturday against Marshall, John Calipari is concerned.
Goodwin finished with 18 points against Marshall, 10 came at the free throw line. Calipari needs Goodwin to score and not miss easy shots. "I was disappointed, he missed four layups. I think he's flippin', Rod (Strickland) thinks he's looking down, he's not seeing the basket, he's looking up at the last moment to shoot it. I don't know what it is, I'll watch the tape, see if I can figure out."
As the Cats prepare to travel to Louisville Saturday, Calipari knows his young players will have to play with poise and execute. " You can't miss layups. Bad enough missing open shots, missing layups, come on, you're not going to win."
