Amherst, Mass. - UMass basketball junior Ricky Harris has been named the UMass/Dinn Bros. Athlete of the Week after sensational performances against Kansas and Holy Cross last week. The Minutemen were 2-0 on the week, and improve to 3-6 overall.

In defeating the defending NCAA Champions, Harris reached double-figures for the seventh time in nine games this season. He had 14 points at halftime and ended with 18. Harris was 6-for-16, and scored six from three-point land. Harris also had three assists and two steals in 38 minutes. The Minutemen stunned Kansas, 61-60. Against Holy Cross, Harris led all scorers with 23 points. He was 7-for-18 from the floor and scored nine points from beyond the arc. He also padded the stat sheet with one assist and three steals.

Harris will be honored on Wednesday at noon at the Weekly Sports Luncheon. Chancellor Men's basketball coach Derek Kellogg, women's basketball coach Marnie Dacko, and our own Associate Director for Media Relations Jason Yellin will serve as guest speakers. The luncheons are open to the public and will be held in the Campus Center Room 1009. For the $10 cost, attendees receive a salad-to-dessert meal. Two hour parking passes can be picked up for $2 when you pay for your meal.
