The Harrison twins showed the world what Houston athletes can do, playing a big role in Kentucky's upset over Michigan.
"You're proud like a father, just seeing them continue to improve and just do, do what it takes to get better," said Craig Brownson, who coached the Harrisons to a state championship in 2013 at Fort Bend Travis High School.
"It's funny watching them grow, I texted Aaron yesterday. His sophomore year he missed a three to win a game and I told him you're gonna make bigger shots than this in your career," said Brownson.
Aaron put the missed opportunities behind him in high school.
The shooting guard hit the go-ahead 3-pointer on Friday against Louisville to send his team to the Elite 8. The 6-foot-6 forward kept up his spectacular play by hitting a 3-pointer from NBA range with 2.3 seconds left to lift the Wildcats over Michigan, and send Kentucky to their third Final Four in four years.
Now the Wildcats are Big D bound, with five freshmen. But Aaron Harrison isn't concerned about the lack of experience telling the media, "We're just a tough group of young guys and it doesn't really matter about the age or anything anymore. We just go out and try to fight."
Kentucky will play for a national championship game berth Saturday against Wisconsin at 7:49 p.m.
