Harris Meets the Players
Harris met with the Howard Men’s basketball players postgame.
After the game, Harris went into Howard’s locker room and attempted to cheer the players up.
You guys are so good. You played to the very last second. You made all us Bison so, so proud.
You showed the world who Bison are. You know I was at Howard back in the day when we were just happy there was a game much less getting to this place. Right?
And I literally see Bison all over the world who have been talking about you, this team.
You make us so proud. I know you may not be feeling great right now, okay? But know who you are. You are excellence.
