Michigan State guard Eron Harris didn’t get the Senior Day he dreamed of, but it’s one he won’t soon forget.
Harris, whose college career ended abruptly when he suffered a knee injury last week, was brought to tears watching his mother sing the national anthem on Sunday prior to the Spartans’ final home game of the season.

Eron Harris' mother just performed a beautiful rendition of the national anthem. Apparently a surprise to Harris, who was in tears listening

The moment alone was enough to induce chills, but the fact Harris apparently didn’t know it was going to happen made it even better.
The 6-foot-3 Indianapolis native, who transferred to Michigan State following two seasons at West Virginia, was dressed in his full uniform and warmups despite needing crutches to get around.
Harris averaged 10.7 points per game this season before his injury.
