ARLINGTON, TX – Aaron Harrison did it again, hitting another clutch, late three-pointer with seconds remaining for the second straight weekend to propel Kentucky to Monday night’s championship game with a 74-73 victory over Wisconsin.
The Wildcats trailed 73-71 after Traevon Jackson hit two of three free throws after being fouled on a three-point attempt with the score tied at 71-71.
After Harrison’s latest heroics, Jackson had a chance to win it for the Badgers, but his shot at the buzzer rimmed off.
Kevin Kugler, Bill Raftery and John Thompson called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
