More Recognition for Elias Harris



I just ran across Jay Bilas' article at ESPN.com posted on Dec. 14th. In it he goes over the best and worst of the weekend hoop action. I didn't see anyone else discuss or reference the article so I thought I'd throw it up here. He has some great things to say about Elias.

Picking the best and the worst of the weekend

Best Freshman: Elias Harris, Gonzaga
I know that he is 20 years old, but Harris has a motor few pros have. He pursues every ball and he can be isolated off of the block and score. His motor gets him to the free throw line and he will continue to improve as his raw ability is harnessed. Harris had 27 points, five rebounds and two blocks against Davidson in a game the Zags played without star guard Matt Bouldin.
Runner-Up: Kansas guard Xavier Henry had 31 points and was magnificent against La Salle. If not for the highlight reel that is Kentucky's John Wall, Henry would be the talk of the first-year players. He is the genuine article.

It is quite an honor that a sportswriter and color commentator of Bilas' talent has picked Harris over Xavier Henry as Best Freshman of the weekend.
