Joe Harris isnt going to grab most peoples attention when the Virginia Cavaliers go through their layup lines before games.
Harris looks like just another guy on the team. Mike Scott? Asasne Sene? Yeah, those bigs easily stand out. But not Harris, until the game starts.
Hes sort of like fine wine to the average basketball observer. After a while, though, watching him come off screens for 3-pointers, jumpers in the lane, his use of the dribble, how he adroitly gets to offensive rebounds, his desire to box out so bigger teammates can grab defensive boards, and just the way he carries himself on the court, one comes to appreciate Harris overall game. When Harris is on the floor, No. 16 Virginia is usually at its best.
Harris is a well-rounded player capable of dipping his hands into every statistical basket and then some. But for those in and around the Virginia program, sometimes Harris impressive stroke overshadows his many other attributes. Thats only because he has such a gorge...
