WATCH: Eron Harris gets Touching Breslin Center Goodbye

Few college basketball players see their careers end the way Michigan State guard Eron Harris did. It was announced just two weeks ago that Harris suffered a career-ending knee injury in a loss to Purdue.

It meant no big goodbye, or so most people thought. Instead, Harris got one of the best going-away gifts possible. After being surprised with his mom singing the national anthem before the Senior Day game, Harris also found a way to get in to the game despite his injury.

With Michigan State up big on the Wisconsin Badgers in the final minute, Tom Izzo called a timeout to get Harris in to the game. His teammates then made sure he had his moment, but traveling on purpose and allowed him the ceremonial kiss of center court.

Harris played two seasons at MSU after transferring from West Virginia, finishing his career by averaging 10.7 points and 3.0 rebounds per game this season.
