Just call him Aaron “Clutch” Holiday.
Holiday, the junior guard for No. 23 UCLA, saw his team trail Wisconsin 65-59 with just under four minutes left, and decided to do something about it. So he knocked down two threes, assisted another, converted two free throws, and picked up a steal in the next three minutes to give the Bruins a 70-69 lead.
And when the Badgers’ Khalil Iverson made a free throw to tie the game, Holiday decided he wasn’t done with the heroics.
Watch for yourself:
What a shot, and what a performance. Holiday finished with 18 points (10 of which came in the final four minutes), and the Bruins improved to 4-1 on the year.
