08:20 AM ET 01.01 | With the Ryan Harrow project in full swing, University of Kentucky coach John Calipari has turned his attention to Alex Poythress. As he did with Harrow, Calipari is now putting Poythress through daily one-on-one workouts in an effort to crank up a motor that has too often idled lately. Harrow, who missed four games with a mystery illness and averaged just 1.5 points in four other games, has averaged 15 points, 3.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 2.0 steals and less than a turnover per game over the past four. Harrow said he had a naturally "chill" personality before Calipari worked his magic. ... Poythress, who has both the body and ability to be talked about as a top-five pick in the next NBA draft, started fast before fading.

If a literal "one-on-one" game, I'll take the young guy.

Most coaches would just sit the player at the end of the bench and leave him there for the rest of the season.. Calipari sees the potential in Poythress.. just like he did Harrow

Some of the comments above are simply amazing.........in a disgusting sort of way. Hard to imagine the hatred that must go on in some minds. College BB is a big time business, but it is still played by kids (anybody 18-22 still needs time to mature). It's OK to be a real "fan" of a team (I am), but to hate another team/players/coach is a little twisted. If you are this way, perhaps you should at least consider your priorities in life.
