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.
