Harrison On Accidently Meeting His Wife While At College!
Harrison, and Brittany Barnes, then senior year college students who were out with their friends catching some meal on a normal summer day, ended up meeting each other in [B]Skis food-court on the Franklin Street, Chapel Hill.
The small incident later sprouted out into a love story between the two that only they knew at the moment.
It was Brittany who chose to share that part of their story to the SportsDay Style that made the pair fall accidentally in love. She said:
"We were sitting outside and I walked in to order and Harrison is walking out of the door, we stand there and stare at each other for a second with the glass in between us. I'm like waiting for him to open the door, right? And he's just staring. So I open the door and I'm like, chivalry must really be dead, right? And he's like, 'Oh, my bad. What's your name?' That's exactly what he said.

Brittany further explained the awkward connection at that moment by saying:
"I said, 'Brittany.' And he said: 'My name's Harrison.' I said I knew because everybody knew who the basketball players were."
With that small coincident, Harrison hit the connection when he knew that he wanted Brittany more than anything, and like a hopeless romantic tossed his moves on impressing the girl who wasn’t into Basketball players at that time.
Harrison worked up his Hollywood moves to get Brittany’s number and carefully scouted out to find her favorite ice-cream flavor.
It wouldn’t be unfair to say that the ice-cream helped to act as a catalyst to trigger some feeling inside Brittany who stood impressed watching the NBA player who was outside her house holding her favorite Java chip ice cream!
Mr. Basketball’s undying spirit just changed the way how things were going. His ignore calls and texts soon started getting answered and leveled up to the pair making their relationship official in November 2012.
