Back in 2014, Harrison hit a dagger in the corner to beat Louisville in the Sweet 16, followed by back-to-back game-winning threes to beat Michigan and Wisconsin in the Elite Eight and Final Four, respectively. Just a year later, Harrison had yet another clutch 3-pointer against Notre Dame in the Elite Eight to retake the lead in the game's final minutes. Five years after leaving Kentucky, the former Wildcat is back to doing what he does best. In a game against Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv, Harrison knocked down a three at the buzzer to win the game for Olympiacos Piraeus. Check out the replay, which includes the broadcast call celebrating the dagger: https://twitter.com/EuroLeague/status/1317192194822967296?s=20 In the 85-82 victory, Harrison finished with 12 points (3/5 shooting, 2/4 from three), three assists, two rebounds, and two blocks in nearly 20 minutes of action. Following stints with the Charlotte Hornets (2015-2017) and Dallas Mavericks (2018), Harrison signed with Galatasaray of the Turkish Basketbol Super Ligi (BSL) and the EuroCup in September of 2018. After renewing his contract, the former Wildcat averaged 15.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 1.1 steals per game in 2019-20. This summer, Harrison decided to sign with Olympiacos, where he is currently averaging 10.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.0 steals per contest.
