LEXINGTON, KY (RNN) - No. 3 Kentucky rallied in the second half to pull off a close 68-61 win at home against Cleveland State Monday night.

The Wildcats (5-1) were down 31-27 at the break. But the Vikings (3-3) weren't done, leading Kentucky by 10 points with less than eight minutes left in the game.

With about a minute and a half left, twin brothers Andrew Harrison and Aaron Harrison scored back-to-back 3-pointers, helping Kentucky take the lead and hold on to it to win the game.

Kentucky made only three of its 14 3-pointers, while Cleveland State made five of its 15. Both teams made slightly more than a third of their field goals.

Julius Randle led the Wildcats with 15 points and 15 rebounds.

Kentucky goes on to host Eastern Michigan on Wednesday.

"They say big things come in small packages and that's very true for Aimee," said tenth-year JCJC women's soccer coach Dolores Deasley.
