Here is more of what Ryan Harrow had to say about Saturday’s loss — and why UK simply did not follow instructions on defense.
Question: Is it hard to explain to others why experience is so important to be a good team?
Harrow: “It is important to have a lot of experience and knowing when they go on those type of runs, how to stop it.’
Question: Is it harder to be a freshman at UK than other places because of the expectations and success Calipari’s teams have had?
Harrow: “I think it is harder here because you are supposed to get here and get out of here (for the NBA). Basically, that’s what it is. Maybe that’s not what it is with this group and we have to accept that and keep playing as hard as we can.”
Question: Why do you think freshman Alex Poythress seems to not play with the energy and zeal that Calipari wants?
Harrow: “He is working hard to make the changes. It isn’t just going to happen overnight. He is just going to keep working hard until the change is obvious to everybody.”
Question: How deflating was it to watch Elston Turner hit so many deep 3-point shots and score 40 points?
Harrow: “He was just having a good night. I know Archie (Goodwin) tried to play hard on him and he was just making tough shots.”
Question: Did you sense any frustration on your team when Turner kept scoring?
Harrow: “Yeah. Who wouldn’t be frustrated when you are trying to play good defense and he hits that type of shot. That’s just normal. We just didn’t do everything we were supposed to do to stop him. We had talked about him for a couple of days now and Coach was telling us if he was driving right that means he was going to pull up, if he’s going left it is going to be a step-back, and if he is facing up you know he is trying to do a crossover, but he is never going to go to the hole. He was just knocking down shots today and I don’t believe he went to the hole once so, we didn’t do what we were supposed to do on him.”
