HE DOES IT AGAIN
Aaron Harrison with another Great Shot. For the record on the foul on the 3 point shot the play before, it was a terrible call. Harrison's feet tocuhed the floor before Jackson made contact with him.
Bullshit refereeing gets shot down in some awesome poetic justice... I love March Madness.
On top of the fact that Jackson shuffled his feet right infront of the official
He's a gamer. Probally the best Wildcat with the ball in his hands. Randle, Young and Aaron Harrison will be starters in the NBA and damn good ones at that
Hopefully this will now put all the who's the better twin debate to rest.
Dude is a killer
I would have to say that hitting the game winning 3 in the Sweet 16, Elite 8, and Final Four has to improve his draft stock. That's just having ice in your veins when the season is on the line every time and its just automatic. I wouldn't hate the Bulls taking him. He could probably do some damage in time defensively in Thib's system as a 6'5 PG. We know he can hit a shot in crunch time, too.
Does that mean that if he has the Clutch Gene, his brother does too, by virtue of their being identical?
Only Skip Bayless has the answer to that question my friend...anyone looking to lose their soul can tune in Monday on ESPN2 for what surely will be a rant of epic clutch proportion! aha
One is clutch, the other isn't.
On that last play Andrew drove behind the backboard, committed to jumping in the air before thinking about whether or not he had someone to pass it to, and barely, barely barely pulled off a pass to Randle. Kaminsky got a hand on it and if Randle didn't receive it right, that was the game, Andrew would have blown the whole season for them.
Luckily, Randle grabbed a hold of the ball, sent it too Aaron and he bailed Kentucky out.
But lottery? I think Young and Randle are good bets, but I still think Harrison will be around 20 at the earliest.
As some may already know, Aaron is my favorite UK prospect this year. I don't think I'm overreacting but I feel it's possible that he goes in the Top 15 of this draft. History does not lie about the NCAA Tournament making or breaking players and for the most part we have seen our share of guys, who came from nowhere to leapfrog in the First Round. The thing with Aaron is that, although he has had a roller coaster season with his team, he has been very consistent in the postseason when it counts the most and I know this has to have GMs hair follicles raised.
how the hell do you stand 4 feet off a guy when your up 2? Why give up a three pointer when its the only shto that beats you?
I think Aaron might be NBA ready and Andrew isn't.
I always couldn't understand why Harrison twinS (I mean both) were called dissapointments and not ready..
first of all Aaron was supposed to do a fewer demage, not him but Andrew was projected to be Top10 pick..
so for Aaron what you guys expected more from a player who was already written as a less dominant projected only mid first rounder? a 20ppg scorer??
he is averaging 14ppg and shoots in mid 30s from three while attempting like 4 long shots, he can handle , he can pass pretty well for a two guard, and now we easily can see he is CLUTCH
in the tourneys 5 games he shot a lot of threes and still made 56% of them! 14 of 25
that's pretty good season for a freshman guard who wasn't supposed to be top10 pick
its because he doesnt have great athletcism and quickness.
SG's lacking both usually get underrated. Jordan Adams is going through something similar right now.
I have an interesting question. His stock has risen a lot lately, but do you think this would have happen in the same intensity is he hasn't hit the game winners? (assuming UK still wins and he gets the same stats). I think the clutch/winning factor could be a little overrated (see MKG).
well, i wouldnt say Clutch factor is overrated. i would say though the " winner" label is overrated. i hate when people rave about a prospect because " he's a WINNER!" .
scouts just fell so inlove with MKG motor,heart, and leadership qualities they overlooked his broken jumper. how he couldnt create his own offense. and how he was never agressive on the offensive end.
