Aaron Harrison named SEC Freshman of the Week
BIRMINGHAM, Ala.(WKRC) -- Freshman guard Aaron Harrison was named the Southeastern Conferences Freshman of the Week following UKs victory over Belmont. The honor is the second of the Richmond, Texas, natives career.
Harrison poured in 23 points in the Wildcats 93-80 victory over Belmont on Saturday. Eighteen of those points came after halftime as UK outscored the Bruins 52-37 following the break. Harrison has now topped the 20-point plateau in consecutive games and four times in his young career.
The 6-6 guard also added a career-high seven assists, a mark that matches his brother, Andrew, for the most of any player this season. He also hauled in six rebounds in the win which was one board shy of matching his career high.
Harrison sunk 8-of-11 free throws. The 11 attempts equaled a career-best mark. For the season, Harrison has poured in 181 points which is second on the team and a total that already ranks 51st among all freshmen in program history for a first-year player.
