WKU ADDS BUTLER TRANSFER CHRIS HARRISON-DOCKS

 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — WKU head men's basketball coach Ray Harper announced Tuesday the addition of Chris Harrison-Docks to the program after the guard elected to transfer from Butler University before the start of the 2012-13 regular season.

Harrison-Docks is enrolled in school and practicing with the Hilltoppers, and he will have three-and-a-half years of eligibility at WKU beginning after the conclusion of the first semester of the 2013-14 season.

"Chris is a great addition to our basketball program," Harper said. "He has a very high basketball IQ, and he is as competitive of a player as you could find. He can shoot with range, and his dedication to improving his skills is evident in how he enrolled in school early so he could begin practicing with our current team right away. We could not be more pleased to be able to bring a player of Chris' caliber to WKU."

Harrison-Docks hails from Okemos, Mich., where he was a three-time first team all-state guard at Okemos High School. He averaged 23 points, seven assists, six rebounds and nearly four steals as a senior, and he finished his prep career as the all-time leading scorer at his high school with 1,426 career points.

Harrison-Docks was rated as a three-star recruit by Scout.com coming out of high school, and he selected Butler after having offers from Akron, Ball State, Bradley, Drake, Eastern Michigan, San Diego State, Utah and Western Michigan, among others.

WKU is on the road for two games this week beginning Thursday at 7:05 PM at South Alabama. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN3 and ESPN Full Court, regionally on WKYU-PBS and in Louisville on WBNA. It will also be broadcast on the radio on the Hilltopper IMG Sports Network with Randy Lee and Hal Schmitt on the call.

WKU returns home on Thursday, January 31 for a 7:00 contest against Troy.

Tickets for the 2012-13 WKU basketball season are on sale now and can be purchased online at WKUSports.com or by calling the WKU Ticket Office at 1-800-5-BIG RED or 745-5222 locally.
