Harris brothers to join Dwyer basketball 

By Jason Lieser

Tia Harris, a second-team all-area point guard for Martin County last season, and his brother Terrell Harris transferred to Dwyer earlier this year and are expected to join the basketball team.

Tia Harris, a 5-foot-10 senior, averaged 17.9 points, 6.4 assists, 6.1 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game in 2008-09. Terrell, a 6-foot-2 junior forward, did not play much last year but is a promising talent.

“They’ve both got to earn it,” Dwyer coach Fred Ross said regarding playing time. “We’ve got four or five good guys coming back.”

The Panthers went 22-8 last year and reached the Class 5A state semifinals.
