Sophomore guard Manny Harris garners his second career Big Ten Weekly accolade after a stellar performance in the Ann Arbor Regional for the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer. Harris helped U-M claim regional honors as he averaged 28.0 points, 8.5 rebound and 5.0 assists while shooting 66.7 percent from the field, 57.1 percent from behind the arc and 87.0 percent from the line. With those efforts, Harris earned regional MVP honors, helping U-M advance to the championship rounds at Madison Square Garden. Opening the season, Harris posted a career-high 30 points against Michigan Tech after a 10-for-15 effort from the floor. He added seven rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes of action as the Wolverines rolled past the Huskies, 77-55. In the second contest against Northeastern, Harris posted 26 points, eight assists and a career-high 10 rebounds to earn his first career double-double. Half of his 26 points came from the free throw line as he closed the game 13-for-14 from the line.



Harris was the last Wolverine to earn Big Ten Player of the Week honors when he nabbed the award during his freshman campaign on Feb. 18, 2008.
