CBS Sports Network and CBSSports.com’s Jon Rothstein sat down with Wildcats coach John Calipari and asked him a few questions.  One question:  “A big part of your success the past five or so years has been due to elite guard play. Do the freshmen you brought in this year have a chance to take a seat at that table?”

Calipari’s answer?  “Andrew and Aaron Harrison have got some myths to bust. You talk about two great kids who when it’s time compete at that level will be ready. Now there’s been times when the competition wasn’t high or they got bored and they stepped back. My challenge is to keep them involved. I think you’ll find that they’re different than guys I’ve had. They’re bigger. They’re 6-5, 220. Derrick Rose wasn’t that big. I don’t think Tyreke Evans was that big. John Wall was kind of in between that and he was faster. Brandon Knight wasn’t as big but could really shoot the ball. He was a different type of point guard. I think Aaron and Andrew bring great size. They should be two great defenders. They’ve got to be in shape. They’ve got to be used to staying in a stance. But they should be two great defenders.”
