Aaron Harrison Hits Game Winning 3 Pointer Against Michigan, Sends Kentucky to Final Four

March 30, 2014 Updated: March 30, 2014

Aaron Harrison hit a late three-pointer against Michigan on Sunday night, sending the Kentucky Wildcats to the final four.

Harrison, a freshman point guard, stepped back and hit the three pointer with just 2.3 seconds left in the game.

A long attempt by Michigan after that fell short.

The close game ended at 75-72. 

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.

The Wildcats will face No. 2 Wisconsin, which won the West Regional with a 64-63 overtime win over No. 1 Arizona on Saturday. The Final Four game will be on April 5.

The National Championship is scheduled for April 7.
