Media pundits argue all of the time about which athletes contain the “clutch gene.”

Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Ray Allen, Tom Brady, John Elway rank among the greats in the respective sports. Even players like Tim Tebow have garnered acclaim for playing big in the clutch moments.

Kentucky Wildcats guard Aaron Harrison has proven himself to be a major “clutch” player with ice in his veins.

For three games in-a-row heading into the NCAA National Championship game, he has hit the go-ahead three-point shot to win. Three straight game winners. THREE. How clutch is that?

After having hit last-second shots to advance from the Sweet 16 to the Elite 8 and again to the Final Four, Wildcats’ fans (and college basketball fans in general) were on the edge of their seats as the final seconds ticked off the clock as the game was the Wisconsin Badgers to lose—up 73-71. The ball made its way into Aaron Harrison’s hands, and the rest is history.

Harrison TwinsWith 2.3 seconds remaining and the NCAA Tournament’s last Final Four spot on the line, Kentucky’s Aaron Harrison gave us our tournament moment.

A good three feet behind the 3-point line, Harrison rose with confidence over Michigan’s Chris LeVERT, an outstanding defender that was constantly impacting the game on that end of the floor all game.

Swish. 

Tweet of the Day: Kobe Bryant

Kobe BryantKobe Bryant has never been interested in making friends. He’s always made that very clear.

But he did go out of his way to send some kind words to Kevin Ware, the Louisville guard who suffered one of the most grotesque injuries in recent sports history Sunday against Duke in the Midwest Regional Final.

In the spirit of April Fools, Bryant was duped by a fake Kevin Ware twitter account — KevinWare_5 – to which he directed his wishes to get well.
