LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky point guard Brandon Knight is
learning on the job.
Coach John Calipari has praised Knight's development for the
10th-ranked Wildcats, saying Knight's decision-making and
unselfishness has been one of the keys to Kentucky's seven-game
winning streak heading into Saturday's Southeastern Conference
opener at Georgia.
Knight is averaging 4.4 assists and 3.0 turnovers a game during
the run, compared to 3.4 assists and nearly 5.0 turnovers a game in
the first seven games of the season.
Knight has also become more vocal, organizing players on both
ends of the court. He pulled aside center Eloy Vargas following an
error during a win over Penn on Monday. When Vargas started arguing
with Knight on the floor, Calipari sent Vargas to the bench.
