ARLINGTON, Texas — Only a few college basketball players ever have the chance to experience the exhilaration of sinking a game-winning shot in the NCAA tournament.
Aaron Harrison has felt it three times in eight days.
Harrison added to his legend in Saturday night's second national semifinal with a game-winning 3-pointer that came via a broken play.
With Kentucky trailing Wisconsin by two and time melting away late in the second half, Andrew Harrison attacked the rim, got caught in the air on the baseline and had to throw the ball to Dakari Johnson to avoid a turnover. Johnson quickly threw it back to Andrew in the corner, Andrew swung it to his brother on the left wing and Aaron coolly buried a deep 3-pointer over the outstretched arms of Josh Gasser with 5.7 seconds left, giving the Wildcats a 74-73 win that secured a spot in Monday night's national title game against UConn.
