KENTUCKY VS WISCONSIN
“You can’t be scared to miss, and you want to be that guy that wants to take the big shots,” those are the words of Aaron Harrison. He hit the clutch 3 to clinch the game against Louisville, Then he hit the near buzzer beater against Michigan. After that it was the 3 from NBA range that the freshman hit with 5.7 seconds to play yesterday to take a 74-73 over West region champion Wisconsin. Yes, the freshman will probably be in an NBA uniform in a few months but right now i’d say it’s a pretty safe bet to say he’s enjoying college while he can. After a back-and-forth game Andrew Harrison found his twin brother Aaron open for 3 and Aaron took it. That’s what I love about Aaron, he’s not afraid to take the last shot. I turned a few heads when I said Aaron is the most underrated draft prospect in the nation. Now you see why. Most mock-drafters say he is a early 2nd-round guy. I think he could go in the late first round.
