Kentucky’s Karl-Anthony Towns may have had the game of his career so far, putting up 25 points and forcing Notre Dame’s Zach Auguste into foul trouble against the Fighting Irish. But when it came to winning the game, a player with a familiar last name when it comes to clutch moments came through: Andrew Harrison.
Last season, it was his twin brother Aaron whose last-minute daggers won game after game in the NCAA tournament for Kentucky’s run. And this year, it was Andrew who came through against the toughest test that Kentucky’s had all season to force Notre Dame to foul him on the shot with six seconds remaining. Without hesitation, he swished one free throw. And then a second. And after the Fighting Irish failed to get a good look in their final drive down the court, Kentucky is heading to the Final Four.
