Mark Turgeon had no idea who Jarrod Polson was on Nov. 9. He does now. The former walk-on led the Kentucky Wildcats over the Maryland Terrapins, 72-69. Polson was unheard of outside of Lexington before that game. Will we hear from him again?
With Ryan Harrow out for Kentucky's showdown with the Duke Blue Devils on Nov. 13, that seems like a very real possibility.
Polson won't be called upon to score double figures every night. Don't expect him to make 80 percent of his shots every game, either.
What we can expect from Polson is for him to be a reliable, mistake-free floor general. He did not turn the ball over against Maryland, a very important statistic considering mistakes often go hand-in-hand with youthful teams.
