Kentucky Wiilcats’ head coach John Calipari has maintained that he believes his start back court – the Harrison twins, Andrew and Aaron, will return to Kentucky for their sophomore seasons.
According to Sean Deveney of Sporting News, many in the NBA, including one unspecified General Manager, do not believe that to be the case.
“I think the tournament has helped those two as much as anyone,” one general manager told Sporting News. “They were disappointments for this year, there’s no other way to say it. They looked overhyped, they didn’t look like first-round picks. But as the season has gone on and looking at how things came together, they look more like the players we thought they were coming in.”
Aaron Harrison was, of course, the star of the day, hitting the game-winning three-pointer with 2.3 seconds to play as the Wildcats defeated the Michigan Wolverines 75-72 to advance to the Final Four.
Both Aaron and Andrew are projected as late first rounders by several different pundits.
