SUWANEE, Ga. – Team Loaded (N.C.) is easily on a shortlist of favorites to bring home the title this week at adidas Finals, but that task will be significantly more difficult without elite 2017 point guard Blake Harris.
Harris broke his wrist roughly two weeks ago and will be sidelined for eight weeks, according to Harris.
“It will be really tough for me to see my teammates play without me,” said Harris, ranked among the top 5 players in North Carolina and top 20 point guards nationally in the Class of 2017. “But I will be cheering them on from the bench rooting for them!”
Still, hold your tears of pity; Team Loaded still has Dennis Smith Jr., the top ranked 2016 point guard in the ESPN 100, at the controls.
Harris was averaging 14 points a game this AAU season.
