He was getting some nice praise from Baron and the URI fans during preseason and throughout their two exhibition games.

No one was happy with their effort against Sacred Heart - fans, coaches etc. Someone posted on Projo.com that Harris is in Baron's doghouse - said fan also stated he didn't think Harris hustled all that much; which is the opposite of what was said during the preseason. Apparently he took an ill-advised 3 late in the first half - he does have that range for a 6'11 guy - as he hit about 20 last year at a close to 40% clip.

It'll be interesting to see where he is in 6 or 7 games, as URI isn't deep in the post - so you'd think this kid would be busting it for all the playing time he could handle. I think they play Utah tonight out west.

soup, and any Siena fans I just want to be clear that I am not trying to cause trouble by posting this, I am only following it because of all of the posts this summer about if he would be a impact player or not. I am really on the fence about D2 juco's and their impact on D1 BB

No trouble - I'm certainly following him.

I think their game against SHU was a stinker - they also had one of their better players quit in the lockerroom 10 minutes before the tip because he wasn't starting. I see that Baron noted today he thinks that had an effect on everyone. URI thinks they are really improved this year.

I'd be willing to bet that Harris is a 10 and 6 guy, at least, before the season is done - and he would have been a 12 and 8 guy in the MAAC this year. I've never seen him play - but the URI posters, during the exhibitions, were all saying he's the most athletic 6'11 guy they've seen, albeit slim, and that he'd be an impact player this year.
