Sibling rivalry: Torrian Harris to match up against Draymond Green tonight

Posted: November 8, 2010 by Jared Field in College

Here’s a nice little anecdote about tonight’s exhibition game at Michigan State from greenandwhite.com:

Last season, Isaiah Dahlman got the chance to play against his brother when the Michigan State men’s basketball team hosted Wofford in a nonleague game.

Junior forward Draymond Green will get his turn tonight.

Green’s older brother, Torrian Harris, is a senior guard for Nebraska-Omaha. The two will square off when the Mavericks take on the Spartans in MSU’s second and final exhibition game at 7 p.m. at the Breslin Center

I’ve seen Torrian Harris play on numerous occasions, so I can say this with some degree of certainty: If Draymond Green had Harris’ athletic ability, he’d be in the NBA right now. Torian Harris is one of the most explosive athletes I’ve seen up close. This guy was a flat-out warrior for Lansing CC before moving on to Nebraska-Omaha. An undersized scrapper at 6-1 (even that’s an exaggeration), Harris routinely led his team in rebounds and even in scoring on occasion. He often played a forward position at LCC because he was such a dynamic athlete.

To be honest, he’s quite similar to Green in that both aren’t prototype position players, but they play the game the right way.
