UVa's Harris Named to Oscar Robertson Watch List

      Charlottesville - UVa senior guard Joe Harris is one of 15 players named to the Oscar Robertson Trophy Preseason Watch List announced Tuesday.

      Last year, Harris averaged a career-high 16 points, four rebounds and two assists per game and earned All-ACC First Team honors. Duke's Jabari Parker also made the watch list. UVa opens at home Friday night against JMU.

      Joe Harris, UVA SENIOR GUARD, said "I hurt my foot in the beginning of the summer and I unfortunately wasn't able to do anything this summer. But it could have been a blessing in disguise just to get some rest and focus on some other things and just be more of a coach out there I guess in helping some of the younger guys and everybody else mature. But everything right now is healthy."
