C.J. Harris played four seasons with the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and was great in all four of those years. Wake Forest will definitely be losing a good player, but that is just the nature of college basketball, with players having a short stay that can only last a max of four years on the court. Let’s take a look at Harris’ time with the Demon Deacons a little further.
This past season, Harris put up 15.4 points per game, which was surprisingly less than what he put up in his junior year, where he averaged 16.7 points per game.
For how efficient of a three-point shooter that Harris was, it is surprising that he did not take more shots from behind the arc. This year, Harris shot 43.1 percent on average from deep range, but only made 59 threes. Although this is not a bad total by any means, a player that is that lethal from behind the arc should be taking more shots.
Anyways, Harris scored nine or more points per game in every year for the Demon Deacons.
Although it would be great to see Harris playing at the next level, who knows if that will happen. Harris definitely has the shooting ability to make it, but he would have to bring up that assist total and possibly move to the point. He only averaged 1.9 assists per game in his senior year.
Whether the case, Harris was a great player for Wake Forest and he will definitely be missed.
