BUFFALO, NY – For the second straight year, the University at Buffalo men's basketball program will have a player take part at the Pro Basketball Combine, as senior Jeremy Harris has earned the invite. Last year, Wes Clark took part in the event.
The Professional Basketball Combine, which will take place May 21-22 at the Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, CA, is a secondary draft combine designed to give players an opportunity to showcase their talents in hopes of being selected to play professional basketball. Each player who attends has the opportunity to participate in private workouts and scrimmages, do combine testing, and interview for NBA GMs, NBA scouts, G-League personnel and overseas opportunities in what could be a life changing experience.
Harris was a second-team All-MAC selection for the second straight year and was also named the MAC Tournament Most Valuable Player this past year. Harris averaged 14.0 points per game and 6.2 rebounds per contest. In just two seasons with the Bulls, Harris eclipsed the 1,000 point mark in a Buffalo uniform, doing so in the MAC Tournament against Central Michigan.
Harris scored 31 points in the MAC Championship game against Bowling Green and followed that up with 21 points and 10 rebounds in the first round of the NCAA Tournament as the Bulls defeated Arizona State, 91-74.
