In the post-game press conference, Mississippi State coach Rick Ray was asked about the play of UK’s Ryan Harrow, who had 19 points, seven rebounds, four assists and zero turnovers.
“I actually had a chance to play against Ryan Harrow when he played at North Carolina State when he was a freshman and I was still at Clemson,” Ray said. “He has really evolved as a basketball player. I know that when we were at Clemson, he struggled against our pressure at times, like most kids do as a freshman. You can tell he is maturing and trying to figure things out. I think he is a good basketball player and I think he just kind of had to find his way with all the scoring and all the different opportunities you have here at Kentucky to get the ball to different people.”
