There are few things more depressing than the losing team’s locker room after the game. Tonight was no exception. Ryan Harrow was visibly emotional while speaking to reporters about Kentucky’s loss to Vanderbilt. After a 2-15 shooting night riddled with poor decisions, Harrow accepted the blame: “It’s my fault. I apologize. If we don’t make the tournament, I have to take responsibility.”
Harrow then broke down into tears and put a towel over his head for privacy.
Willie Cauley-Stein said that Ryan’s been dealing with that pressure all season: “Ryan has a lot of weight on his shoulders. For one, he’s playing point guard at the University of Kentucky. That in itself is big. Any mistake you make, you’re hounded for it, any shot you don’t take you’re hounded for it. Any miss…you know. It starts adding up pound by pound.”
Tonight it was just too much.
