USA TODAY Sports

Michigan State guard Gary Harris won his second Big Ten Freshman of the Week award after scoring 20 points against Loyola (IL).

Michigan State guard Gary Harris was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week after scoring 20 points in a win against Loyola (IL) on Saturday.

Harris also led the Spartans in scoring against Arkansas-Pine Bluff last Wednesday with 13 points, adding two rebounds, two assists and three steals as well. Most impressive for Harris was his shooting efficiency. Harris shot 5-for-9 from the field against Arkansas-Pine Bluff, and followed that with an outstanding 7-for-11 shooting night against Loyola (IL), including 5-for-7 from three-point range.

The award is Harris' second Big Ten Freshman of the Week title this season and first since suffering a sprained shoulder, which forced him to miss two games in late November. He first won the award after averaging 18.5 points in wins over Kansas and Texas Southern earlier this season.

Harris is averaging 13 points and 2.6 rebounds for the Spartans this season. Their next matchup comes against Tuskegee on Dec. 15.
