Marquis Teague Called Ryan Harrow to Make Sure He was Good
The Chicago Bulls were in New York tonight to play the Knicks and Adam Zagoria got a chance to speak to former Kentucky point guard Marquis Teague about current floor leader Ryan Harrow.
“I called him, I talked to him, I just tell him, ‘Just play your game, don’t worry about what nobody’s saying or anything like that,’” Teague, now a rookie with the Chicago Bulls, told SNY.tv Friday before his team met the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
“Just like he’s good and all that.”
Teague said he called Harrow on the suggestion of several Kentucky coaches.
“I was talking with some of my coaches,” Teague said. “They was like, ‘Call him.’ I just called him to make sure was good.”
Marquis, like Doron Lamb, also couldn’t believe that the Wildcats weren’t currently ranked.
Teague said he hasn’t been able to watch many Kentucky games, but is surprised they’re unranked.
“Yeah, that’s crazy,” Teague said. “You know, we were always one of the top five teams or something like that for the last two years, and that’s just kind of crazy. They need to get that back up.”
Teague said he’s spoken a few times to Calipari, who is optimistic the team will improve as the season progresses.
“He just was like, they’re going to be good come the [NCAA] tournament,” he said. “They’ve got a lot of work ahead of them.”
The Wildcats will play tomorrow for the first time in a week vs. Marshall in Rupp Arena and then take another week off before playing Louisville in the Yum Center.
If Kentucky can win those games they will surely be back in the Top 25, but that will be easier said than done.
