Ryan Harrow is learning what it takes to play point guard at Kentucky.

The sophomore transfer is being asked to lead — which means being more vocal and more aggressive.

Harrow started the season opener against Maryland before missing four games due to an illness and because of a family matter. He lost weight during the absences and feel out of the Wildcats' rotation.

Now things have started coming together for the 6-foot-2 Harrow.

His playing time has steadily increased and in his second start last Saturday against Lipscomb he had a season-high 12 points, two assists and no turnovers.

John Calipari says Harrow has work to do, but the guard is glad to be back on the coach's radar and is determined to be the floor leader Kentucky needs.
