LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT) Not only did the Kentucky Wildcats get a win over Tennessee on Saturday, they also got a career-performance out of their freshman guard Andrew Harrison.
Harrison went bonkers, scoring 26 points against the Volunteers -- a career-high for him. His second-best game came earlier in the year versus Louisville when he scored 18.
“We have been working really hard on pick-and-roll stuff for him and trying to teach him the pace of the game and how fast you have to go off the screen, how you have to set your man up, how you have to attack the big man,” head coach John Calipari said. “What he was doing was, he was messing with the ball and then not covering any ground and not putting any pressure. We have been working for weeks on him doing that.”
“I thought initially we were trying to go over the top and then we told him to turn them down and go and attack the big man. And he did a great job. He's big; he's got size so it's not like a 6-foot guard going in there. He did good stuff."
