Championship Moments: Cats clicked when Teague turned it around

Marquis Teague's mid-season turnaround helped propel the Cats to title No. 8.

In my latest installment of Championship Moments, I delve into the early season struggles experienced by UK point guard Marquis Teague, followed by his much improved play which allowed Kentucky to make its run to the title. Here's an excerpt:

Then, after a five-turnover effort in a 65-62 win at Tennessee, Teague turned the corner with a vengeance as the Cats beat an Arkansas team eager to test the Cats' open-court ability.

"I said in the locker room, 'Marquis Teague, unbelievable floor game. The best you've played this year. Unbelievable floor game,' " Calipari said after after UK pounded the Razorbacks, 86-63. "Nothing was forced. He didn't make any crazy plays. It was unbelievable."

Emphasizing the strides his point guard had made, Cal wasn't shy about drawing a parallel between his team's future success and the improvement of Teague's play.

"If we are close to getting him right, all of a sudden this thing (the season) takes on a different look to it," Calipari said.
