Coach Cal did not want Andrew Harrison to leave the huddle


Andrew Harrison played his worst game as a Wildcat and it affected his demeanor on and off the court. Several times throughout the second half, when his teammates stood up to applaud a big play, Harrison remained seated, pouting. He was clearly shaken by his disappointing showing, a six-turnover afternoon with only three points.

After the game, Calipari said he told his point guard, “Man, I love you. I got your back. You’re my point guard. Stop it.”

That’s not what he told him during a timeout, when Andrew walked away from the huddle.

See if you can read Cal’s lips, below:

“You f—— stay in this huddle!”

    Hey Andrew, I have bad days at work occasionally as well. Don’t sweat it, just come ready to play next time out!

      It’s more than this game. This was just the culmination.

      It’s a pretty simple evaluation. Booker is a better shooter, passer and defender than Aaron. Tyler is a MUCH better shooter, passer and defender than Aaron. However, the twins are Cal’s guys for some reason and he will defend the heck out of them to the media and fans. But as witnessed tonight, when the game is on the line he’s going with the second group.

      The reason why I like Booker and Ulis so much better than the twins (besides production value) is that they have great attitudes and are true team players. When Andrew hit that three late in the game Tyler was cheering and going crazy while on the bench. Then later when Harrison got benched and Tyler hit a 3, he was the only one on the bench SITTING while everyone else was going crazy cheering. The twins are selfish and immature, in my opinion. Booker and Ulis are selfLESS, team players.

      *Andrew, not Aaron in for Tyler

    This web site has been rah rah’ing Andrew all summer long, and he has been horrible most of the year. Both twins have been. Can’t shoot, average defense, bad shot selection, killing the ball on offense. I told people last week the key to this game would be whether or not Andrew or Ulis got most of the minutes at PG. It’s not just the TO’s. He has no basketball IQ. He would get the pass at the top of the key then dribble BACKWARDS to three steps inside the mid court line then pick up his dribble. They don’t even have to play D because he just killed the offense. It doesn’t go into the book as a TO, but it might as well, and he did that at least half a dozen times. Sloppy telegraphed passes, bad inbounds passes, getting burned on drives. Seriously, this web site needs to be more objective on players. Aaron isn’t much better. Devon and Ulis are FAR better as a guard tandem than the twins, and it’s not even close. If you take the twins’ stats out of today’s game, the rest of the team went 18 for 34 which is over 50%. The twins have shot poorly ALL year, so this just isn’t some great UofL D garbage. The numbers back me. The young guns won this game for us.

      Go back to the Loserville web sites you troll. The Harrison’s are the reason why we got to the title game last year and this is the ONLY bad game he’s had all year, also Aaron hit a big 3 at the end of this game that put the game out of reach. Andrew Harrison is one of the best pg’s in the country and he simply had a bad game today that’s it. The good thing about this team is, if one has a bad game another steps up, Andrew has done this several times when Ulis had had bad games. These guys are not machines!!!

      Andrew may have had 6 turnovers, but he also had 4 assists, that’s 3 more than the entire U of L team.

    I feel bad for Andrew. By all accounts the twins seem like really good guys. However, what we are all witnessing is their NBA dreams flying out the window. Aaron still has a shot to make the NBA. Granted I think Lamb was a bit better and he is already out of the league. But again, Aaron will get a chance. Andrew on the other hand has relatively little chance to make it in the NBA. A kid that has been virtually assurred to be a lottery pick for the last 5-6 years. But lets face it, he never will be an NBA point guard. Don’t get me wrong…he is very good. And he could get over this slump and make it somewhere. But he won’t be drafted. NBA GMs are already suggesting he has fallen completely out of the draft (Aaron will be lucky to be drafted mid-second round).

    The real question begins to become….what will Andrew do after this year? Does he declare and risk not being drafted…and perhaps hope his brother’s team picks him up as a free agent??

    But with Ulis likely returning and Briscoe coming in…he likely risks being the #3 PG on our roster next year if he stays. All of this is playing on him I think. The pressure is really beginning to mount on Andrew like no other player to live up to all these “expectations”. It bothered me when UIis hit that big three late after he got pulled out and the whole bench was cheering but Andrew was sitting there scowling like someone just stole his girlfriend.

      I think you have stated it well. I think Andrew is starting to realize he has been exposed. Make no mistake, he is really good, but he is not NBA good. He simply is not an elite PG.

      What Delray said. The only thing I disagree with is that if he does come back, Cal still has to start him no matter what to keep the narrative going and do whatever he can to get him drafted. Ullis has been the better point guard all season and Cal keeps defending Andrew on social media.

    I thought the entire first unit was tight starting the game. I think sometimes the twins press too hard but we will not win a championship without them. The entire team played great defense, shared the ball and we scored more points than loserville. That’s all that matters.
    GO CATS !!

    It looks like Cal is yelling at Tyler. If this going to start again, can he just go ahead like last year & have their dad come up & hang out with them for a week.

    6:43 pm December 27, 2014 Permalink

    Honestly Andrew Harrison is not that good right now. I hope he gets better so he and his brother can go to the NBA. The worst thing is for them to return and us have to sit through this another year while another college takes elite BETTER guards that would otherwise (If the twins were gone) be in UK blue. He is way to slow and indecisive. How many times do we see him pass up a WIDE open three to pump fake and drive into trouble and destroy the offensive rhythm. He does not see the floor and is not a elite defender. He does not have any basketball IQ to speak of, does not see the floor or control the pace of the game. What is he really good at? He can’t shoot, doesn’t pass well, doesn’t play D or rebound and not athletic. Now that we know he is not the best teammate with this report of him pouting (Especially when the team is excelling). It’s like it’s someone else’s fault he turns the ball over. Tyler is much better but anyone with a BRAIN knows that.

      UK = 43%
      UL = 21%
      And how did your and Katna’s prediction of a UK blowout with Harrell fouling out work out for you? About as good as your football predictions!!!

    I’m not sure why you decided to post this. it just feeds the idiots that think Andrew should be benched. Ulis has the easy job, he has no pressure to perform. Harrison is carrying the load as the leader of this team, he delivered in March last year with his brother Aaron and I don’t believe Ulis would be able to perform near as well if he was having to lead.

    • Bledsoe's Biceps
      7:08 pm December 27, 2014 Permalink

      Who do you think is leading when the 2nd platoon is on the floor or when Ulis is at PG for the 1st platoon?

    • BTownUKFan

      Ulis is leading the second unit, Andrew is leading the team. There is a big difference in responsibilities and if you don’t know that you’ve never been part of a team.

    It’s not just this game. Cal had to come to Andrew’s defense just a couple of games ago. Matt Jones even wrote a post chastising any UK fans who had the audacity to suggest Ulis was playing better and deserved more minutes. The cold hard truth is that Andrew simply isn’t the best PG on this team. And when he is not playing well, he pouts and whines. As Cal often says, he can’t hide you here. Cal will have to decide how long he remains devoted to Andrew vs giving more minutes to Ulis.

      Andrew played poorly, went to the bench and pouted then came back in and hit a 3 to seal the win. I like our starting point guard and any team in the nation would love to have him in their backcourt.

    One off game. The best thing for Cal will be to do what he’s doing. With AP going down there are plenty of minutes and Andrew will be a huge factor in winning number 9. Although today was a struggle the twins are great young men that tend to step it up in big games. It’s awesome having them on the team.

    Andrew didn’t have his best game but the one shot he made was a card killer. Big Blue salute to the killer three by Andrew.

    Andrew will be fine. The Louisville guards weren’t a good matchup for him and he got frustrated. He’ll bounce back and get back on track.. Ulis is good and has a great future also, but if we lose Andrew and Aaron, there’s no chance for number 9 this year. This team has a lot of potential because of the depth, not in spite of it. No need in arguing who’s better at this point in the season, let them play and compete and we can debate all of that at the end of season while we’re celebrating another NC.

    It is absolutely astonishing to me that people who claim to be fans spout the same nonsense that the people who want to divide UK spout. How about we enjoy an 8 point win over the #4 ranked team on their own floor? The team is undefeated with a team concept that all of the players are buying into. What exactly do you think you accomplishing with the amateur coaching that rips a player apart? Does anybody here actually think we would be better 8 or 7 deep?

    overall the twins didn’t have a stellar game. but if you watch the replay you’ll see they were very solid in the final ten minutes or so. although they missed some shots, i thought their defense and decision making was very good (except aaron fouling the 3pt shooter w/10 secs left). they get down on themselves when they commit a foul or get beaten on a play.
