Harris Rides Hot Streak Into Wisconsin Big 10 Challenge

Posted: Updated:


On Wednesday, for the second year in a row, Virginia will face Wisconsin in the ACC Big 10 Challenge.

The 'Hoos are at home this year after winning at Wisconsin last year.

Cavalier senior guard Joe Harris has been on fire recently. He was named the MVP of the Corpus Christi Challenge after averaging 15 points on 9-of-12 shooting in two games in Texas.

In the last three games Harris has been hot from 3-point land making a whopping 11-of-12.

"Your seeing his timing coming back, I mean he always plays hard," said UVa Head Coach Tony Bennett. "He's a marked man but there are other guys that have to be accounted for and I think that's helping him. I like how he's letting the game come but has a level of aggressiveness. For him - it doesn't have to be a one man show and I think he's got a nice feel right now."
