Ramon Harris of Anchorage knocked down 4-of-7 3-pointers and finished with a season-high 19 points for the Iowa Energy in a 106-102 win over Erie in NBA D-League action.

The 6-foot-7 veteran has moved to center since being traded – a different look for the perimeter player. But the position change has suited him well.

Harris, of West High fame, has averaged 12.5 points and 10.1 rebounds over the last 11 games, up from his 7.4 & 5.2 overall numbers in 40 games this season.

This has been quite the month of March for the former Alaska Class 4A player of the year.

He has established season or career highs in points [19], rebounds [16], assists [8] and steals [5].

In his last game, Harris collected six points, 10 rebounds and eight assists.

Moving inside has taken him away from the 3-point line, which has always been his bread and butter. He is a 37 percent long-range shooter over his 170-game career in the D-League.

On the flip side his rebounding numbers have skyrocketed. He needs just seven more boards to match his career high total of 216 set in 50 games last season with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
