The Kentucky Wildcats are getting good at this last-second, game-winning thing and no player has been more clutch for the team than Aaron Harrison.
The freshman hit a three-pointer with 5.7 seconds left, lifting Kentucky to a 74-73 victory over Wisconsin and into the national championship game Monday night against Connecticut.
The money moment, from other angles:
Harrison’s teammates had more time to react initially.
“You can’t be scared to miss,” Harrison said. “You want to be that guy who wants to take the big shot.”
Clearly, Harrison is that guy. The back-breaking, game-winning trey looked a lot like the back-breaking, game-winning trey Harrison hit against Michigan in Kentucky’s Elite Eight game last Sunday. See?
Oh, and he hit the go-ahead shot against Louisville in the game before that one, making him 3-for-3 on game-tying or go-ahead three-pointers in the final minute of the second half of the tournament.
No wonder he had that “I got this” look Saturday night.
