Barnett Harris: A member of the Blue Hen family
These are good days to be affiliated with Delaware basketball. Earlier in the week, the Blue Hens knocked off Virginia of the ACC on the Cavs’ home court to earn a trip to Madison Square Garden for the Preseason NIT semifinals.
Barnett Harris, a 6’9″ forward from Monroeville, Pa., was all smiles Wednesday talking about his decision to sign with Delaware to continue his basketball career.
“I considered myself a part of the Blue Hen family when I committed about a month ago. Now I just made it official. It’s a little less weight on my shoulders. Now I can just focus on preparing myself for Delaware,” Harris said.
His father, Barnett Sr., thought back to when his son first took up basketball as a third-grader.
“It’s been a long process,” Harris Sr. said. “He enjoys basketball. As an ex-player, I know the doors it can open in life. So I just want him to experience that, much more than I ever experienced it. I’m very happy for him.”
