Harrison Lifts Wildcats To 75-72 Win Over Michigan; Final Four Set
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Aaron Harrison made a 3-pointer from NBA range with 2.3 seconds left Sunday to lift Kentucky to a 75-72 win over Michigan and a trip to the Final Four.
Harrison, one of five freshmen on eighth-seeded Kentucky’s starting lineup, elevated over Caris LeVert, and drained it. He scored all 12 of his points over the last 8:05.
Nik Stauskas missed a heave at the buzzer and the Wildcats (28-10) rushed off the bench and dogpiled Harrison at midcourt.
This will be Kentucky’s 16th trip to the Final Four and it marks the first time an all-freshman starting lineup has made it there since the Fab Five took Michigan in 1992.
Kentucky plays Wisconsin Saturday in Texas.
Stauskas led the second-seeded Wolverines (28-9) with 24 points.
The Final Four games will be broadcast Saturday, April 5 on TBS and TNT. The first game will start at 3 p.m., while the second will start around 6 p.m.
The winners will go onto the championship game, to be broadcast right her on CBS13 on Monday, April 7. Coverage will start just before 6:30 p.m.
