PORTLAND, ME - The Maine Red Claws, presented by Quirk Chevrolet, today announced that they have acquired Terrel Harris, a rookie guard out of Oklahoma State University, from the available player pool. To make room on the roster, the Red Claws waived rookie guard Abdulai “Dula” Jalloh. The announcement was made by Red Claws President and General Manager Jon Jennings.
Harris, 22, joins the Red Claws from Strasbourg IG (France-ProA) where he appeared in 9 games this season and averaged 8.9 ppg, 1.9 rpg and 1.7 apg. He spent four years with the Oklahoma State University Cowboys where he was named to the 2009 Big 12 All-Defensive Team after a stellar senior season (35 games: 13.9ppg, 4.8rpg, 1.9apg, Steals 1.7spg (4th in conference), FGP: 48.8%, 3PT: 37.7%, FT: 78.5%).

The Red Claws will next be in action tomorrow as they host the Springfield Armor on “Elvis Night.” The game, which will be the first of four back-to-back games with Portland High School this month, will tip off at 8 PM. The halftime entertainment will be provided by renowned Elvis tribute artist Johnny Thompson, considered by many to be one of the top Elvis impersonators in the country, in honor of what would have been Elvis Presley’s 75th birthday. The team will then travel to Springfield to complete the home-and-home series on Saturday.
