Aaron Harrison has seen it all.
Two years into his Kentucky career, he’s hit more big shots than most players make in a lifetime. He’s played on the biggest stages and in some of the most hostile venues in the game.
But after he had faced down the latest raucous road crowd on Saturday night at Florida, even the ever-clutch shooting guard had to admit it never becomes routine.
“You can’t ever get used to it,” he said.
It only seems like it.
Harrison had just short-circuited the Gators’ upset bit and helped send their fans to the exits while time was still on the clock. After a quiet, foul-trouble plagued first 20 minutes, Harrison scored 18 of his 23 points in the second half of a 68-61 win at a packed O’Connell Center. Whenever the top-ranked Wildcats – who moved to 23-0 (10-0 Southeastern Conference) – needed a big basket, Harrison delivered.
