Every time Andrew Harrison turned around on Saturday, John Calipari was there — wildly gesticulating, yelling, pointing in his face. For many, it’d be a nightmarish vision, but when you’re the main cog in the well-oiled machine that is the No. 1 team in the country, the scene is just reality.
Calipari started on Harrison less than two minutes into the game after a sequence wherein Harrison missed a layup, stole the ball and then missed another layup in a 10-second span. He palmed his face and pointed at Harrison. It was one of many displays of frustration throughout the afternoon.
Nevermind that the Wildcats would go on to stomp South Carolina, 58-43. Tough, in-your-face love — that’s how Calipari gets through to Harrison.
