Talking David Blatt and the Cavs on CBS Radio in Cleveland

I was a guest of the “Ken Carman Show” on CBS Radio’s 92.3 The Fan a couple times last week. This past Friday, we talked about Andrew Wiggins, Joe Harris and the Cavaliers Draft while looking out toward free agency. The time before, we broke down the hiring of David Blatt.  You can listen to that conversation by clicking on the link below. It was also Ken’s birthday on...

Cavaliers select Virginia's Harris in 2nd round

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) -- The Cavaliers have selected Virginia shooting guard Joe Harris with the No. 33 overall pick in the NBA draft. Considered one of the best available shooters, the 6-foot-6 Harris averaged double figures in all four college seasons. He shot 40 percent on 3-pointers (263 of 646) in his career and played in more games (135) than any player in school history...

Cavs draft with sharp-shooting Joe Harris with No. 33 pick

Having already added Andrew Wiggins to the fold with the No. 1 pick, the Cleveland Cavaliers selected Joe Harris, the sharp-shooting swingman out of Virginia with their first pick in the second round (No. 33 overall). Harris, who had a first-round grade by’s Jay Bilas, is a 6-foot-6-inch efficient scorer with a quick release and excellent range. On the defensive end, he’s...

Harris still the engine that drives Virginia's run to Sweet 16

RALEIGH, N.C. -- If you don't know about top-seeded Virginia, which advanced to the Sweet 16 with a resounding 78-60 win over No. 8 Memphis that wasn't really that close, you should. And you will soon enough, as the Cavaliers travel to Madison Square Garden next week for the East regionals, facing a team that many experts have pegged to win it all -- Michigan State. Not so...

Cavs hope they won’t get zoned out over final regular season stretch

Virginia senior Joe Harris noticed it all game long Tuesday night, through missed shots, passed-up shots and turnovers. Every time he would reverse the ball to the top of the key against Virginia Tech’s 2-3 zone defense, Hokies senior Jarell Eddie would instinctively drop back several steps from the wing. So with the Cavaliers on the ropes in Blacksburg, Va., down one with less...

Virginia Basketball: What happened to Keith Jenifer?

            If you followed Virginia Men’s Basketball in the early 2000s you’ll remember that a few of Pete Gillen’s players went from highly touted recruits, to falling into legal trouble, to transferring into obscurity.  For example, as a sophomore in 2002, Virginia shooting guard Jermaine Harper was arrested for a DUI and suspended from the team.  He later transferred...

Virginia Basketball going forward

I wanted to write this article the day after the University of Virginia basketball team lost to Iowa at the end of last season and send it in as an Op-Ed to The Daily Progress, but I figured that no one reads print media anymore so I shelved it until now. The 2012-2013 season for UVa was, in a word, fair.  True, back to back 20+ win seasons is a major step up for a program who saw...

ACC Capsules: Joe Harris makes all-ACC case

Even more quiet than Virginias push for a top-three finish in the ACC standings is junior wing Joe Harris bid for first-team All-ACC. The Cavaliers enter a crucial road game at North Carolina at 18-6 overall and 8-3 in the ACC. The Cavs RPI (Ratings Percentage Index) of 79 isnt backed up by their impressive record, though. Harris play, however, is. And just recently the two have...

Harris a game-time decision with broken left hand

Virginia basketball coach Tony Bennett says sophomore guard Joe Harris will be a game-time decision against Clemson because of a broken left hand. Bennett said Monday during a weekly teleconference that Harris hurt the hand during Saturday's 70-52 loss at then-No. 5 North Carolina.

Joe Harris: Virginia's underrated star

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...
