Kentucky guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison announced on Friday that they’ll return to the Wildcats for their sophomore seasons.
So, the 2014 national runner-up goes from loaded in 2014-15 to really, really loaded.
"We still have unfinished business," Aaron Harrison said in university statement.
Juniors-to-be Alex Poythress and Willie Cauley-Stein had previously announced that they’re coming back to school. So, too, had sophomore-to-be big men Dakari Johnson and Marcus Lee. Now, the Harrison Twins are coming back — and coach John Calipari is bringing in four highly-touted freshmen, too.
Kentucky will have nine former McDonald’s All-Americans on its roster. Incoming big men Trey Lyles and Karl Towns Jr. are blue-chip recruits and possible 2015 lottery picks, too.
Aaron Harrison was the breakout star and last-second hero of the NCAA tournament, delivering late baskets to beat Louisville, Michigan and Wisconsin as Kentucky went from a No. 8 seed to the national title game last season. He averaged 13.7 points per game; his brother averaged 10.9.
As usual, the Wildcats will make for really, really good television.
