Aaron Harrison had become arguably the biggest star of the NCAA Tournament, hitting big shot after big shot to carry Kentucky into the championship game.

Nobody will forget his game-winning 3-pointers against Michigan to clinch a Final Four berth and Wisconsin to clinch a spot in the title game, as well as his go-ahead 3 against Louisville in the Sweet 16. But he didn’t display his clutch gene in the title game, as UConn led from start-to-finish in a 60-54 victory.

“Those shots don’t mean anything now,” Harrison said. “If I could take those shots back and somebody else hits those shots and we win this game … I’d be the happiest person in the world.”

Harrison went 1-for-5 from 3-point range Monday and scored only seven points, his tournament low.
