Harrison twins a terrific twosome at Marshall County Hoopfest

Aaron Harrison (2) and brother Andrew (5) in the background gave Hoopfest fans what they came to see from the Kentucky bound twins.DRAFFENVILLE - As the 10 o'clock hour approached Friday at Reed Conder Gymnasium, not a seat was to be found as the much anticipated up-close look at the University of Kentucky committed Harrison twins from Travis High School (Fort Bend), Texas, game was about to tip-off.


Aaron (2), and brother Andrew (5), thrilled the many clad in UK blue fans as they battled the Louisville Ballard Bruins to a 78-76 win.
Giving the Tigers of Fort Bend all they could handle, Ballard and Louisville signee Quentin Snider (4) didn't seem to be fazed by the court presence of two of the top players in the nation out-rebounding Travis 34 to 28 and keeping the game close for four quarters of play.
Aaron hit a trio of three-pointers in the first quarter helping Travis to keep a slight lead the Tigers maintained until halftime when they went up over Ballard 35-27.
The twins kept their cool despite the heckling Ballard fans to maintain a 56-54 lead after three quarters of play and with one minute remaining in the game, Louisville was still just two behind at 76-74, then tied the game at 76 following two free throws by Snider.
With 29 seconds remaining, Aaron was sent to the line by Ballard making both free throws to go up 78-76 and on their following possession, Ballard turned the ball over as time ran out on one of the more competitive games of the Hoopfest.
Aaron led Travis with 23 points followed by Andrew with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Ballard's Snider led all scorers with 28 points and was 11 of 12 from the free throw line.

Travis High took on another tough Kentucky team in Madison Central in Saturday's 6:00 Hoopfest game coming away with another closely contested 64-57 win despite Aaron Harrison picking up three fouls in just the first quarter and spending more time than he would like on the bench the rest of the first half. With Aaron on the bench, the play of Andrew stepped up as did John Burnett (1) giving the Tigers a 33-26 lead at halftime.
Madison Central drew to within two points of Travis in the fourth quarter but the Tigers held on making their free throws down the stretch for the seven point win.
Dominique Hawkins led Madison Central with 29 points and made all six of the teams free throws.
The Harrison's got a little taste of what playing at Kentucky will be like for them next year with a gymnasium full of cheering UK supporting fans for the most part and were generous with their time signing autographs and posing for pictures as long as time allowed. In comments to the Lexington Herald-Leader, the twins said they really wanted to give the fans a good show, knowing many had traveled quite a distance to see them play also saying the fans and community had been great everywhere they went for the two days they were at the Hoopfest.
