Andrew Harrison knew extra practice time would eventually translate into positive game results.
Harrison scored a career-high 26 points in a 74-66 victory over the Volunteers, including 16 in the second half to help the No.14 Wildcats (13-4, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) put Tennessee away. He was perfect 10 of 10 from the foul line and Kentucky made 23 of 24 free throws as a team.
But more notable for Harrison was how he got to the free throw line against Tennessee’s physical lineup.
Drawing contact is a sign of Harrison’s increased confidence and comfort with his role as Kentucky’s floor leader.
