Aaron Harrison had a rough night Saturday, going 1-7 from the field for three points. There’s been a lot of talk lately about the Harrison Twins’ draft stock dropping, and many analysts are suggesting they return to school next year to work on their game.
When asked during today’s media opportunity, Aaron Harrison said he hasn’t thought at all about whether or not he’ll leave Kentucky after this season, and that he doesn’t monitor his draft stock; however, he later admitted to Kyle Tucker that it’s difficult to balance individual worries, like auditioning for the NBA, with the team concept Cal’s going for:
“I think that’s the biggest question for all of us. We all, all of our lives, have just been worrying about ourselves. When you put that group of people all together, it’s really hard. Coach said it’s impossible, really. So, I mean, we’re just trying to do the impossible and see where it goes. We’re really getting better at it.”
Count Aaron among those trying to see the positives from Saturday instead of the negatives:
“I think we learned a lot from that game. We talked about how, yesterday, if we would have won that game we probably wouldn’t have learned as much as we should have from that game. Since we did lose, I think we learned a lot and just took a lot from it.”
Whoa, whoa, whoa. I’m all for silver linings, but that’s a bit much.
