Zags up to 12th; Harris honored
One day after winning the Old Spice Classic, Gonzaga University got the attention of the national pollsters, and forward Elias Harris the attention of the West Coast Conference.
The Bulldogs, who ran their record to 6-0, are ranked 12th in the Associated Press and USA Today/ESPN polls, while Harris was tabbed the WCC Player of the Week.
Harris, a 6-foot-8, 240-pound senior from Speyer, Germany, scored a season-high 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds – the 23rd double-double of his career – against Davidson College in leading the Bulldogs to their second Old Spice Classic Championship. The first came in 2008.
