Heading into this weekend, Ramon Harris hadn't played more than 20 minutes in seven straight games, and he even sat for all but four minutes of a loss to Rio Grande Valley on Dec. 28.
"I just had to ride through it. I was working out on off days and just trying to get ready for when they needed me," he said Saturday night after a 124-121 victory over the Iowa Energy at Memorial Coliseum.
He hit 7 of 12 shots, including 5 of 8 from 3-point range, finishing with 19 points in 20 minutes. More importantly, he hit the winning shot, a 3-pointer as time expired, to give Fort Wayne its 10th victory in its last 13 games.
"Coach put me in a situation where I could get a chance to look at it. Worst case scenario, we're going to overtime," Harris said.
