Report: Aaron, Andrew Harrison to return to Kentucky for sophomore season
Twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison will return for their sophomore season at Kentucky, a source told Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski on Friday. Andrew later confirmed the report on Twitter.
Aaron averaged 13.7 points and 3.0 rebounds and Andrew 10.9 points and 3.2 rebounds per game this season for the Wildcats (29-11), who lost to UConn in the national championship game.
Writes Wojnarowski: "The Harrison twins had wrestled with the decision over the past several weeks and had flip-flopped several times in recent days. The most recent feedback from the NBA had them on the bubble as first-round picks, league sources told Yahoo Sports."
Freshman center Dakari Johnson and sophomore forward Alex Poythress announced on Wednesday that they'd also be returning to Kentucky.
Forwards Marcus Lee and Willie Cauley-Stein are also coming back, meaning only Julius Randle and James Young will be leaving from a group of seven Wildcats who averaged at least 14 minutes per game last season.
Aaron and Andrew Harrison have decided against NBA Draft, will return to Kentucky for sophomore seasons, source tells Yahoo Sports.
