Kentucky Basketball Roundtable: Analyzing UK's Point Guard Troubles
Mark Zerof-US PRESSWIRE

The Kentucky Wildcats are the highest-ranked team with one loss. Kentucky dominated Lafayette last week, winning 101-49. But John Calipari's team has flaws—specifically at point guard.

Julius Mays and Jarrod Polson have shared point guard duties with Ryan Harrow missing time. Archie Goodwin has also played some point, but by nearly all accounts, his talents are better suited for the wing.

Mays and Polson have combined to post a 20-to-6 assist-to-turnover ratio through three games, but their scoring (they combine for 12 points per game) leaves much to be desired.

Even if Mays and Polson can get the offense set up and limit mistakes, scoring has been a key part of Calipari's point guard success in recent years.

Would the story be different if Harrow was active? Are Mays and Polson adequate substitutions for Harrow, and can Kentucky reach their potential without Harrow at point?

These questions and more highlight the Kentucky Basketball roundtable for week three.

Each week, your Kentucky Basketball Featured Columnists will be having a discussion regarding the state of the basketball team. We'll discuss and predict each game in detail, along with any other major storylines for the week.
