The X-factor for the Wildcats is also their point guard.
Marquis Teague is only a freshman, but he is already being heavily relied upon by John Calipari and the No. 1 team in the country, playing the most minutes of any player on the team.
Teague has the ability to take over a game, which he has been demonstrating during the tournament.
He has improved all of his numbers during the tournament, averaging 14.5 points, 5.3 assists and 2.8 turnovers per game in the Big Dance. He is quite possibly playing the best basketball of his collegiate career, which is a great sign for Kentucky.
In the last three games, however, Teague's numbers have all gotten progressively worse. He played very well against Iowa State, then had some problems against Indiana before being stifled by Baylor.
Teague's next opponent is one of the best point guards in the nation in Peyton Siva, and he will have to play well if Kentucky wants to win that game.
