Kentucky sophomore guard Ryan Harrow went to an academic meeting today and also was scheduled to practice as coach John Calipari said he thought Harrow was “better.”
He has missed the last three games with an illness after playing only briefly in the opening game win over Maryland.
“He’s lost weight. He’s got to get some weight back (and we’ll) see from there,” Calipari said today.
He indicated no one was still sure what was wrong with Harrow, who had a similar problem during his high school senior season.
“All they’re saying is he’s lost seven pounds and must have had something going on. They don’t know what it was. But we will see,” the UK coach said. “He looks thin. That’s why I said, I don’t know. I want to see him in a practice setting and start figuring out what we do, what’s the timetable.
“He’s obviously the low man on the totem pole. You’ve got to start from behind. That ain’t all bad for him either, because now he’s going to have to fight for time. He’s behind everybody, which means you’ve got to earn it in practice. It’s not all bad.”
