Harris Named C-USA Co-Freshman of the Week
Dec. 26, 2016
RUSTON – After coming off the bench in week seven to register two double-digit scoring performances, Louisiana Tech’s Jalen Harris has been named as the Conference USA Co-Freshman of the Week.
The true freshman has not missed a beat since missing four straight games due to injury, scoring in double figures in four of the last five contests. This past Tuesday night in the one-point loss to Florida Gulf Coast, Harris recorded 14 points while knocking down two three-pointers.
The Duncanville, Texas native backed that up with a 17-point performance in the lopsided victory over LSU-Shreveport on Thursday night in the final non-conference game of the season. He also tied a career high with six rebounds against the Pilots.
The shooting guard was perfect from the foul line in both games, combining to go 12-of-12. He is now 22-of-23 for 96 percent on the season.
Harris shared the weekly honor with UTSA’s Byron Brohnen. He joins fellow teammate DaQuan Bracey as Bulldogs having earned the award this season.
Harris and the Bulldogs will begin C-USA play on Sunday, Jan. 1 in Hattiesburg, Mississippi versus Southern Miss. Tipoff is set for 2 p.m.
