Aaron Harrison likes Batman, Andrew likes Spider-Man

It’s finally Andrew and Aaron Harrison’s turn in the spotlight at CoachCal.com, and Eric Lindsey does not disappoint. Andrew calls their first week on campus “an amazing experience,” and says he can’t wait to get on the court with the rest of his team. The two say they’re used to people lumping them together as “the Harrison Twins,” but Aaron admits that sometimes, “it would be more helpful to us if people knew us apart.” So far, the only way we’ve been able to tell them apart is Andrew has slightly longer hair, but if you read their CoachCal.com bios, there are so more differences. Here are a few things they disagree on:

Favorite TV show: Andrew – “Martin”; Aaron – “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”
Favorite food: Andrew – Pizza; Aaron – Seafood
Favorite superhero: Andrew – Spider-Man; Aaron – Batman

See? Totally different.

What about their reputation as stone cold killers? Andrew says it stems from the pair’s competitive spirit, cultivated over years of being disrespected on the court:

“We grew up in a suburb town, and every time we would go into the city, people would try to take advantage of us,” Andrew said. “My dad always taught me to stand up for myself. No matter who it is, you’ve got to go at it as hard as you can, so I feel like you just have to be fearless on the court and win at all costs.”

The twins say they never considered going to different schools. In fact, Aaron says they knew all along they would go to Kentucky:

We never had any doubt about what school we were going to,” Aaron said. “One of us never had a doubt. We were altogether on the decision.”

Finally, despite their cocky reputation, the two aren’t guaranteeing a national championship. Instead, they’re just pledging to do their best:

“People expect us to come here and be great players and have high expectations, so we’ve got to come in here and work hard and fulfill expectations,” Andrew said. “If we win the national championship, we’ve succeeded, but working hard is all we can promise people.”

Go check out Eric Lindsey’s profile of the two over at CoachCal.com, which also includes a video interview. It’s totally worth it.

    Two 18 year olds that are more realistic about winning a Championship than everyone that posts on here.

    I can finally tell them apart. Aaron’s forehead is just a bit bigger, and his face is a little rounder compared to his brother’s.

    I’m BBN all the way, buts it’s refreshing to see a player not guarantee a title. This isn’t the NBA. The best team doesn’t always win. No re-dues. It’s single elimination. To hard to guarantee a title on CBB. What I do know, Kentucky will be good. Very very good this year. Anyone that thinks otherwise is plain stupid or just has major denial issues.

    Can’t wait to see them on the court!
    Cats 2014!

    Right on #6. I like it that they admit there are no guarantees. Let the ballin do the talkin,..not the mouth. Aaron is under rated. No one is talking about him,..and they should be. And James Young,..and Julius,..and on and on. Gonna be a fun year to be a Cat fan. Go Big Blue!!!

    I am a major big blue fan, and I think we will have a great team. I think it is very possible we will win it all this year, but I think we will lose a few early games. If we don’t then I think we will have a few scares. I think we are the “championship” game for a lot of teams and they will play us hard every game. I do think though that once these early games are played the Wildcats will realize they have to play their hearts out and we will win it all.

    # 8…I hope our 13/14 inside men will be close to as fantastic as you were back in the day Cotton Nash. I still remember how you dominated the post for the ‘cats. Lar
