JT on Point Guard Skills

Team Canada head coach Jay Triano responds to your trickiest Ask JT question.
I play grade nine basketball and have recently been moved from shooting guard to point guard. It has been hard for me to adjust to not scoring as much and it makes me feel that I'm not playing well, even if I am. I think it might be that I'm not used to the role. Is there any way to improve your "basketball sense" or be a better point guard, besides looking up the floor and passing to your teammates, which my coach stresses a lot?
It is a tough position and the most important. If the ball never gets up the floor, you can't score. Your coach has shown confidence in moving you to that spot. Good luck.
