FREELAND, Mich. – Sophomore guard Jordan Harris was named the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association's (MIAA) Men's Basketball Player of the Week for the final week of the season the league announced on Monday.
Harris played some of his best basketball of the year towards the end of the season, scoring 20 points in each of the last four games. He was second on the team in scoring in Adrian's 78-74 comeback win at Alma on Feb. 13, coming alive in the second half as he usually does. 21 of his 24 points against the Scots came after the break, including going 5-7 from behind the arc and assisting on an alley-oop to Jeremy Kalonji to help shift the momentum in AC's favor.
Harris followed that up by finishing tied for the team lead in scoring with Kalonji in the season finale against Kalamazoo, with 23 points. Once again he played a key role in the Bulldogs sealing the deal in a comeback win, hitting back-to-back step-back threes in isolation to take the lead back for good in Adrian's 80-77 win to close out the season.
This is Harris's first Player of the Week nod in his career and the first one for Adrian this season. In conference matches, he finished second in the MIAA in minutes played and was third in minutes per game and three-pointers made. Harris made the fifth-most free throws in the MIAA and scored the fourth-most points, finishing fifth in PPG. Harris was also strong defensively this season, leading the conference in steals during MIAA contests.
