Teague's play pleases Calipari

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Marquis Teague's scoring average keeps dropping. It's just what top-ranked Kentucky has needed from its freshman point guard.

Teague has been passing up shots and cutting his turnover rate in the process, transitioning from a scoring leader into a distributor to the delight of coach John Calipari.

Calipari says Teague is really listening and playing the way they need him to play.

Teague is the next in a line of Kentucky point guards Calipari has developed after John Wall and Brandon Knight. Calipari also had success with Tyreke Evans and Derrick Rose at Memphis.

Kentucky's next test is a trip to South Carolina on Saturday.
