The NBA Draft decision of freshman Andrew and Aaron Harrison was something that a lot of people assumed was a foregone conclusion as just about everyone pegged them as being one-and-done as soon as they committed to Kentucky — the school of the one-and-dones.
But while they very well could have entered the draft, it appears that they made the much wiser decision to return to Kentucky for their sophomore seasons.

The decision does come as a shock to some as it appeared they were going to leave the school and pursue their pro careers. But so-so freshman seasons by both brothers led to their draft stocks dropping as the year wore on and there are some scouts who believe they’d begin their NBA careers in the D-League.
That won’t happen though as both brothers have decided to stay in school and not only raise their draft stock in 2015 but all try to make it back to the national championship game and avenge their loss from this year.
