MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Tigers freshman Tyler Harris was named American Athletic Conference Freshman of the Week.
The Former Cordova High Star averaged 21.0 points per game and shot better than 40-percent from 3-point range in two games last week.
He hit for 20 with 6 3-pointers at 22nd-ranked LSU last Tuesday. Harris followed that by leading Memphis with 22 points in Saturday’s Double OT win vs Yale. He knocked down three free throws with two seconds left in regulation to tie the game and force overtime as the Tigers scored the sixth-most points in American hoops history.
