For 30 games last season, Andrew Harrison was more Ryan Harrow than Brandon Knight.
The 6-foot-5-inch point guard struggled in UK head coach John Calipari’s dribble-drive offense and was hard-pressed to provide on-ball pressure throughout the 2013-14 season. That is until the Southeastern Conference Tournament, when Harrison and the Cats ran roughshod through all opponents not named Florida. The run continued in the NCAA Tournament until the Cats faced UConn in the national championship game.
Harrison has the luxury of a season’s experience but will be pushed by freshman guard Tyler Ulis, who is polar opposite to Harrison in a number of ways. Harrison’s size at his position is his most impressive attribute while Ulis’ ability to overcome his underwhelming size is his best characteristic.
