Harris helps rally Menlo women to basketball victory

 

Camille Harris came off the bench to help spark Menlo College's 78-57 nonconference women's basketball victory over visiting UC Merced on Tuesday night as part of the Peninsula Classic.

Harris scored seven of her career-high 15 points in the first quarter as the Oaks (6-8) connected on 65.5 percent of their first-half shots, including 8-of-10 from 3-point range, en route to a 54.2 percent night.

Harris was 6-of-10 from the field, including a 3-of-6 effort from long range. Six different Menlo players made at least one 3-pointer. Jenna Yee connected on both of her attempts, while Vanessa D'Amico, Aaliyah Sowards, Emma Briggs and Fia Hoskinson also hit from beyond the arc.

The Bobcats opened a six-point lead less than four minutes into the contest before Harris helped rally Menlo to a 48-35 halftime advantage.

The Oaks, who face Cal Maritime at 6 p.m. Wednesday, led by as many as 26 during the fourth quarter.

Sowards finished with 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting and recorded seven assists for Menlo, which ended a four-game losing streak.

Menlo had 13 different players reach the scoring column and the Oaks bench overwhelmed the UC Merced reserves by a 43-7 margin, which inlcuded Cameroon native Sophie Faumete scoring her first career points.

Menlo went on a 15-2 run over the first five minutes of the second quarter to take control of the game.
