Kentucky’s Aaron Harrison Drills Game-Winning Three-Pointer; Punches Ticket to Final Four

Not many analysts or fans alike had Kentucky making it to the Final Four. This young team didn’t have the NBA-bound superstars that previous ones did. But don’t tell them that!

In an epic, back-and-forth game with the Michigan Wolverines earlier this evening, the ‘Cats found themselves tied 72-72, with the ball, with under 10 seconds remaining.

Guard Aaron Harrison received the ball in the corner, and came off a screen to get himself just a bit of breathing room. He then dribbled to near the top of the key, cut back left and moved back, and absolutely drilled a step-back three-pointer, with just 2.3 seconds remaining.

The big-time shot gave the ‘Cats the lead, 75-72, and would end up being the game-winner that gave the team a spot in the Final Four.
