Before the season began, Kentucky coach John Calipari predicted that it would take Marquis Teague time to develop as the team’s point guard.
Although Teague was steady in a 108-58 win over Marist in the season opener, he slipped somewhat from the first game to the second contest.
“He (did) everything a guard I have brought into the (Madison Square) Garden has done,” the Kentucky coach said earlier this week.
Teague committed six turnovers and dished out three assists in a 75-65 win over Kansas Tuesday night at Madison¿Square Garden in New York. Calipari said Teague’s early-season learning processs follows the same pattern as Derrick Rose, John Wall and Brandon Knight. All three players went on to become first-round draft picks in the NBA¿Draft.
