Harris Earns Eighth Rookie of the Week Nod
Jan. 23, 2007
CINCINNATI - Amber Harris has been named Atlantic 10 Conference Rookie of the Week for the eighth time. Harris averaged 28 points per game, 5.5 rebounds per game and five blocks per game in a 1-1 week for the Musketeers.
The Indianapolis native scored a career-high 32 points and was 11-of-20 from the floor in Xavier's 89-76 victory over crosstown rival Cincinnati on Wednesday. Harris also blocked five shots against the Bearcats in leading XU to its third-straight win over UC.
She followed that performance up with a 24-point, seven-rebound, five block effort against No. 11 George Washington on Sunday.
XU returns to action on Friday, January 26 when the team welcomes Duquesne to Cintas Center. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
