Anchorage’s Ramon Harris is having something of a renaissance in the Greek League when it comes to 3-point shooting.

Only once in his eight previous seasons as a professional had he shot better than 40 percent from long range.

However, this season his 3-point percentage is 51 points higher than his career average and puts him on pace to break his personal record for a full season.

The newcomer with Aris Thessaloniki has a team-best 3-point shooting percentage of .409 through his first 10 games.

and could break his personal record of .403 percentage set in 2015 with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA G-League.

Harris, of West High fame, was the 2006 Gatorade Alaska Player of the Year and went on to play at the University of Kentucky, helping the team win the SEC championship in 2010.

The 6-foot-7 forward has since traveled the world playing professionally in the G-League in addition to Germany, China, Mexico and now Greece. This is his second season in the Greek League, but his first with Aris.

Harris has played in 332 pro games and made 566 career 3-pointers.

With Aris, he ranks first on his team in 3-point shooting percentage (.409), second in minutes (25.1), second in rebounds (5.0), second in steals (1.0) and fourth in scoring (7.8) through 10 games in the Greek League.

He’s also competed with Aris in the FIBA Europe Cup and Champions League.
