Highlight Moment:

A potent scorer, Harris scored in double-digits in all but three games last season. Early in 2014, the Spartan’s shooting guard exploded for a monster game against Indiana on the road. Harris scored a game-high 26 points on 8-of-18 shooting, while adding five steals, four rebounds and two assists as his team claimed a 73-56 victory. Almost one month later in a loss to No. 21 Michigan, Harris one-upped his previous performance as he tallied a season-high 27 points on 9-of-16 shooting, but the Spartans fell to the Wolverines, 80-75.

Quotes:

“Harris shot the ball very well his freshman season at Michigan State, shooting 41 percent from beyond the arc. His shooting numbers dipped considerably [during] the first half of his sophomore year before he got hot at the end of the season and moved the number up to 35 percent from 3-point range.” - Chad Ford, ESPN.com

“Harris, a 6-foot-4 sophomore from Fishers, Ind., excels for Michigan State because he can score from every part of the floor. You can run him off a screen and have him play catch-and-shoot offense, or you can have him run the pick-and-roll, letting him get into the paint to create. He also defends like you'd expect from a Tom Izzo-coached player. In short, he has the tools to be a legitimate NBA shooting guard – even a potential All-Star.” – Peter Bukowski, SI.com

“Harris averaged a team-high 16.7 points last season, helping his team win 29 games, including the Big Ten tournament championship. He shot 43 percent overall and made 81 of 230 3-point shots. Harris was an Associated Press All-America honorable mention, All-Big Ten and all-conference defensive player. The 6-foot-4 Harris, who was voted team MVP by his teammates and the media, was among 15 finalists for the Wooden Award last season.” – NBA.com
