Marquis Teague's Selfish Play Ending, Puts Together Brilliant Game Against Portland

Marquis Teague appears to be coming alive as he has had two straight games with more assists than turnovers. Earlier in the week against Radford Teague made 5 assists and only committed 2 turnovers while adding 13 points. Tonight against a sharp-shooting Portland team Teague had 8 assists made 0 (yes that is a ZERO) turnovers and added 14 points,
Teague had a great defensive game making 4 steals and only committing 1 personal foul. Teague's season assist total is 26 with 20 turnovers or a 1.3:1 assist to turnover ratio, quite a 2 game turnaround. Teague only shot 30% from the field but made 5 of 6 from the free-throw stripe.

Teague will need to sharpen his skills as the Cats have St. Johns and number 5 North Carolina on tap next week. Kentucky still looked sluggish on offense and appeared to struggle with their perimeter defense against a good shooting Portland squad. Portland shot 11 for 23 from the 3-point line and nearly out rebounded the number 2 ranked Kentucky Wildcats with 35 rebounds to 36 for UK.
