John Calipari on the drawback to playing freshman Archie Goodwin at the point guard rather than the two.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky freshman Archie Goodwin wasn't expected to be the Wildcats' point guard this season. Ryan Harrow transferred from North Carolina State and prepped for that role while sitting out last season.

But a mysterious illness that has sidelined Harrow for much of the season has forced Goodwin to the point.

Because of that, John Calipari sees missed opportunities for his Cats.

"We’ve got to get Archie (Goodwin) at two-guard also so he can get up in front of the break. We got no breakout points because we’re not able to throw it ahead to a guy that we’ve been able to in the past," Calipari said on Friday.

“We’re still in flux. He was out of control most of the game (against Notre Dame). But he’s still learning. He got a little rattled by it. You’ve got to get him up the court at times, which is the dilemma, because if you throw it ahead to him, he makes something happen good. He’s kind of like Michael (Kidd-Gilchrist) was. But, you know, playing him in the pick-and-rolls and doing different things has made us a better team. Defensively, he’s longer.”
