Another day and another miracle Aaron Harrison jumper for Kentucky basketball, which shocked Wisconsin in the 2014 Final Four by a 74-73 margin. Of course, Harrison was just one part of a tremendous team effort that saw the Wildcats shoot 50 percent from the field against a team renowned for its stout defense.
One big reason for that success was sophomore Alex Poythress, who hit all four shots he attempted while coming off the bench. The energetic forward also tied for the game high in rebounds, matching teammate Dakari Johnson with seven.
Herein is a look at Harrison, Poythress, Johnson and the rest of the nine Wildcats who played in Saturday’s thriller, graded based on how they performed over the course of the game.
