SPOKANE, Wash. - Gonzaga University junior forward Elias Harris has been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 9 First Team announced Wednesday.
Harris, an All-West Coast Conference first-team selection, earned his second All-District honor in three years, making the first team as a freshman in 2010. The native of Speyer, Germany, is averaging 13.1 ppg and a team-leading 8.7 rpg while shooting 50.5 percent from the field, going 154-305.
