Kentucky made two three-pointers in its semifinal game against Wisconsin. One was its first basket. The other was its last, an insanely deep three-pointer scored by shooting guard Aaron Harrison to win the game and send his team to the national championship. Harrison’s been a hero of sorts the entire tournament—he’s made two other game-winners, one just last week against Michigan to send Kentucky to today’s Final Four game. That hot streak should come in handy in the final on Monday, when his Wildcats face a scrappy UConn team that upset Florida earlier tonight.
