Aaron Harrison Leads Team USA to World Cup Victory


In the final game of Team USA’s World Cup qualifying tournament, Aaron Harrison was the best player on the court.

The former Kentucky Wildcat shooting guard made four-of-seven three-pointers to score a team-high 16 points in the 83-75 win over Puerto Rico.  Harrison came out hot.  He scored his first eight points in the first eight minutes of the first quarter, including this runner down the lane.

Derek Willis did not play against Puerto Rico, but he scored 2 points in six minutes vs. Cuba.  Harrison added nine points in the route.

World Cup qualifiers resume in June, but Team USA will likely look much different this summer.

    Congrats to A. Harrison one of the most iconic players to sever put the UK jersey on. Didn’t have the greatest career here, but made some of all time shots in UK history. I hope he gets his game together and finally make a NBA team and have a career at the game he loves.

    Very nice to hear. Both Harrisons are making the most of their opportunities at pro basketball, and I applaud their efforts.

    …in the rout, not route.

    That’s OK, Nick, you’re doing fine.
