College basketball fans on Twitter in awe of Aaron Harrison's three game-winners

The Dagger

 

Kentucky freshman guard Aaron Harrison hit another game-winning 3-point shot in the NCAA tournament Saturday to send his team to the national championship game Monday against Connecticut.

It was the third consecutive game Harrison has won by making a long-distance shot with a hand in his face. This one splashed through the net with 5.7 seconds remaining in a 74-73 win over Wisconsin. He made a 3-pointer with three seconds left to beat Michigan in the Elite Eight and started his magical run by nailing a 3-pointer with 40 seconds remaining in an Sweet 16 win over rival Louisville. He also hit two clutch free throws in the final seconds of that game.

All of this, especially Saturday's clutch moment, inspired hundreds of tweets mentioning Harrison. We thought we'd share a few of those that caught our eye.
