Harris, the team's senior point guard, injured his ankle in practice Monday.
"It's about 50 percent right now, but it's a mind over matter thing. My team needed me," he said. "I was just trying to step up."
Still, two key elements led to the need for overtime. The second was Logan reserve Trent Dalton hitting a tying 3-pointer with 3 seconds left on the clock. The first was Hurricane's inability to make its free throws. The Redskins were 6-of-18 from the line in the fourth quarter and overtime.
The most pivotal issue of the matchup had - at that point - still not been exposed. Logan senior center T.J. Tomblin, who had battled foul trouble the entire game and was never an offensive factor, fouled out with 1:12 left in regulation. Hurricane third-year Coach Lance Sutherland said his team's direction in the overtime was little more than a matter of reading the handwriting on the wall.
"For 32 minutes I'd been yelling at Henry: 'Go post up! Go post up!' Finally the light went off," Sutherland said. "He goes and posts up, we feed him the ball and that's that.
"Sometimes he'd post up there earlier and we never got him the ball. Thank God we got it to him."
Sutherland, whose mother was a cheerleader for the 1952 and '53 Hurricane teams, fought being overwhelmed by the moment.
"It's something that, when you step back and take a look at it, it's hard to fathom," Sutherland said about breaking the school's tournament drought.
"We've never been there, you know? But now we are, and we can't be satisfied with that. I wish my dad was here to see it, but that's the way it goes."
Harris finished with 13 points while the Redskins also received double-digit scoring from Miles and Dawson, who finished with 12 and 10 points, respectively.
Logan senior forward A.J. Reynolds led the Wildcats with 18 points and grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds.
