Kentucky will win the SEC this year. There won't be a tie at the top of the standings, but it's not unrealistic Kentucky could lose only one game this season in conference.
With Kentucky running to a SEC Championship, it will be hard not to name a player from Kentucky as Player of the Year. The hopes of this reside on Harrow's shoulders.
Everyone in America saw what happened to Kentucky earlier this season when Harrow was absent. Losses to Duke and Baylor, but also how bad and out of sorts Kentucky looked on offense.
With the Wildcats having Harrow back at point guard and Archie Goodwin back at his natural position of shooting guard, they are starting to click and run like the way Calipari wants them to. This, along with the way Calipari coaches, is the reason Kentucky will win the conference.
Calipari is coaching this team for March. They saw their lumps earlier this season and have looked good as of late, even in the loss to rival Louisville. Everyone on the team is starting to learn their roles within the offense and it can be attributed to Harrow.
Harrow is just the latest of top point guards under Calipari and Kentucky, and he could go down as one of the best overall as he is expected to play the large majority of minutes in conference play. He is not necessarily more talented than Wall or Knight, but he will be doing more with less talent around him.
These are the reasons my pick for SEC Player of the Year, when it's all said and done, is Ryan Harrow.
