A 6-foot-4 guard from Fishers, Ind., Harris became the first Spartan to ever be named Big Ten Freshman of the Year. He ranked second on the team in scoring at 12.9 ppg, while pacing the squad in 3-pointers made (65) and attempted (158). A Second-Team All-Big Ten selection, Harris also was voted Team MVP by his teammates, becoming the first Spartan freshman to capture that honor. He also excelled defensively, ranking third on the team with 45 steals, and sharing MSU's Best Defensive Player Award with Keith Appling. Nationally, he was one of eight finalists for the Wayman Tisdale Freshman of the Year Award.
