His offseason regimen helps him play nearly 48 minutes

Mad Ants point guard Anthony Harris (15 points, 17 assists) directed the offense to a 115-109 win over Maine on Thursday at Memorial Coliseum

You played almost the entire game (47 minutes, 18 seconds). How hard was that?

It's tough, I'm not going to lie. I don't want to sound or be too overly confident, but I do have to credit myself for how I handled every day when I wasn't playing. For two months, I was disciplined enough to work out every single day no matter what. If I didn't do that, I don't think I could play this way now.

This team is operating well on offense. What's working for you?

For the most part, we're doing a good job recognizing mismatches and running our stuff and executing. The biggest thing we haven't done consistently and it shows when we do, is set screens and get the ball moving. When we do that, we're one of the hardest teams to guard.

It has to help having physical guys like Luke Harangody (29 points) and Tony Mitchell (19 points) in the offense.

I told Luke today 'You make my job that much easier when you get going.' So does Tony. Tony can take over point guard-duties sometimes and handle the ball and I can go from the wing. It's great to have a guard like that.

You travel to (division leader) Canton on Saturday. Are you ready for them this time?

They're a tough team. The last time we played them it was a real tough game. But you want to play against teams like that. We're looking forward to it.
