John Calipari had a premonition this morning on his drive into Rupp Arena. He had been talking about starting a different lineup for some time, but something about that car ride Saturday morning made him finally pull the trigger. Kyle Wiltjer was out, Ryan Harrow was in.
The move worked brilliantly Saturday as both flourished in Kentucky’s 88-50 thumping of Lipscomb in front of 21,323 fans at Rupp Arena. Wiltjer, perhaps motivated by the benching, posted his first career double-double, while Harrow scored 12 points and committed zero turnovers in his first start since the season opener.
