So far, I've told you that the Harrison twins are really, really good, but I haven't told you why. Before I go into the details about how this changes the landscape of college basketball, I'll first tell you just what these two can do.
Andrew is the point guard and Aaron the shooting guard in this backcourt. These two both have great size for their positions at 6'5" and 210 pounds, and you may notice that they simply look bigger than most other guards in this video. They use their size to their advantage as well, bullying smaller guards and shooting over them at times.
However, size isn't everything. These two have great skills too, including smooth releases and prolific range. The twins are both threats to drain threes and have the ability to stroke it from beyond 25 feet, which extends the defense. But if the defense comes out too far, they slash through the lane.
Apart from great size and shooting, the two are both freakishly athletic, have good mid-range games, play disruptive defense and are game-changers.
But probably their greatest asset is chemistry.
Being twins, you'd expect these two to play well together, but that's a serious understatement. It seems that these two share a brain, as well as looks, always knowing where the other is and what he is going to do.
Having a backcourt with two skilled players that know each other as well as they know themselves is an advantage that most coaches would kill to have, but luckily for Calipari, his recruiting prowess landed him the ultimate prize.
