ST. LOUIS – Kentucky guard Andrew Harrison says he plans to play in Sunday's game against top-seeded Wichita State after hurting his elbow late in Friday night's win over Kansas State.
Harrison replied, "Yes, sir," when asked before the Wildcats' practice Saturday whether he planned to play. Asked whether he planned to practice, Harrison stumbled before replying, "Coaches told me to do whatever I can do. I'm going to go out and do everything I can."
Harrison hurt his elbow with 74 seconds left while trying to strip a Kansas State player of the ball. He had an X-ray after the game that came back negative.
Harris said the belief is that he hyperextended the elbow. He was still in pain on Saturday, and said he was "taking it day by day."
