Andrew Harrison wants to be a better player.
That’s why he isn’t taking things personally when John Calipari makes a point to his freshman point guard during a public or private setting. Sometimes those teaching lessons can get pretty loud, especially when Calipari isn’t happy with Harrison’s play in practice or during a game.
“Every possession matters so much,” Harrison said after Kentucky’s 105-76 rout of Texas-Arlington earlier this week at Rupp Arena. “Coach Calipari is just trying to make me a better player and that’s what I want to become. You just have to be prepared for this type of coaching and you’ll be good. It’s always tough from the beginning, but I feel like I’m getting better and I want to keep getting better every day.”
