Every year they've been different.
Whether you're talking John Wall, Brandon Knight or Marquis Teague, all of John Calipari's Kentucky guards have brought a little something different to the table. In that respect, whoever plays point guard for UK this year – Ryan Harrow or Archie Goodwin – will be no different.
But the biggest difference this season, perhaps the thing that stood out the most during Kentucky's 93-61 season-opening exhibition win over Northwood on Thursday, is that it might not be just one-man point guard show this season.
While Wall, Knight and Teague were the guys at the point over the last three years, Harrow and Goodwin could split time at the one pretty evenly if Thursday night was any indication. Yes, Doron Lamb and Brandon Knight played some minutes at the one over the past few seasons when the starter needed a spell, but Thursday showed that Coach Cal has two players capable of playing significant minutes at the point-guard position.
