Izzo might advise Harris to enter NBA
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State coach Tom Izzo might advise Gary Harris to enter the NBA draft.
Izzo told reporters on Tuesday if his research leads him to believe Harris would be among the top guards selected in June, he would lean toward telling the sophomore to go pro.
Izzo met with Harris and the rest of his teammates on Monday, a day after the Spartans were eliminated from the NCAA tournament by Connecticut in the East Regional final.
Harris averaged a team-high 16.7 points, helping his team win 29 games, including the Big Ten tournament final. He shot 43 percent overall and made 81 of 230 3-point shots. The native of Fishers, was an Associated Press All-America honorable mention and All-Big Ten player this season.
Notre Dame’s injured Achonwa out for Final Four
SOUTH BEND (AP) — Notre Dame forward Natalie Achonwa will miss the Final Four with a left knee injury, a big blow to the national championship hopes of the Fighting Irish.
Coach Muffet McGraw said Achonwa tore her anterior cruciate ligament in Notre Dame’s 88-69 victory over Baylor on Monday night, calling it devastating for the senior but not for the title hopes of the Irish (36-0).
“We still believe,” McGraw said. “She got us to this point, now somebody else has to finish it.”
Notre Dame will face Maryland next Sunday.
Achonwa was third on the team at 14.9 points per game, but the Irish will miss her most on the boards since led the Irish in rebounding with 7.7 per game. McGraw said the 6-3 forward, named a third-team All-American earlier in the day, was playing her best basketball of the season.
