BOZICH BLOG: Without Harrow, UK A Wounded Team, Fraschilla Says

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Will Ryan Harrow play point guard again for the University of Kentucky basketball team?

Like most observers of John Calipari's program these days, Fran Fraschilla isn't sure about the answer to that question.

Fraschilla, an ESPN basketball analyst, is a friend of Calipari's. He said he takes Cal at his word. And the word is that Harrow missed UK's last two games with illness, and that he will miss at least the next two games after leaving town to take care of family issues. Harrow sat out last season after transferring to UK from North Carolina State.

But if Harrow does not return to play point guard, the glamour position in the Calipari offense?

"They're a wounded team," Fraschilla said from Orlando, Fla., where he will work the Old Spice Classic.

A wounded team that is no longer a national championship contender?

"I don't think they are," he said. "I think they're a wounded team.

"Cal will figure something out. They'll still be very competitive night in and night out, but I don't think they'll have the same swagger they've had the last three or four years without the kind of offensive firepower they've had or the great point guard they've had each time.

"If they had a first-round pick at that spot we'd certainly feel like Kentucky was going to be in the mix, but I think this is a blow."

UK plays Morehead State in Rupp Arena at 7 tonight.
