Harris Claims Second CCAA Player of the Week Award

The women's basketball player led the Pioneers to their biggest win of the season

Shomari Harris leads the CCAA in scoring this season.

Cal State East Bay senior Shomari Harris has been named the California Collegiate Athletic Association Women's Basketball Player of the Week for the second time in the last three weeks, the conference office announced Tuesday.

Harris paced the Pioneers to their biggest win of the season this past Saturday night, a 71-57 road win over UC San Diego, which snapped the Triton's 13-game winning streak. She filled up the box score with 16 points, six assists, five rebounds and two steals.

The Las Vegas native was also CSUEB's top scorer on Friday night in a tough loss at Cal State San Bernardino, finishing with 15 points and playing all 40 minutes.

Harris leads the CCAA in scoring, and ranks second in assists for the season. She has helped the defending conference champion Pioneers to an 11-4 record in CCAA games, putting them in second place in the standings with just three weeks remaining in the regular season.

This week, CSUEB celebrates Homecoming 2017 as the Pioneers welcome Sonoma State and San Francisco State this Friday and Saturday evenings at Pioneer Gym.
