Michigan State shooting guard Gary Harris is entering the NBA draft as a sophomore.

Harris averaged a team-high 16.7 points last season, helping his team win 29 games, including the Big Ten tournament championship. He shot 43 percent overall and made 81 of 230 3-point shots. The native of Fishers, Ind., was an Associated Press All-America honorable mention and All-Big Ten player.

Last season, Harris became the first player in Michigan State history to be named Big Ten freshman of the year and to be voted MVP by his teammates.

The school made the announcement on Monday.
