Shorter, which is playing its first season as an NCAA Division II affiliate, used a big first half to put the Lady Tigers in a hole before having to rally in the closing moments. Harris helped spark the Lady Hawks (2-1, 1-0 GSC) with a team-high 17 points. Point guard Kristin Nash added 13 points. West Alabama (4-3, 0-1), the defending Gulf South Conference Tournament champions, had no answer for the Lady Hawks’ inside-out duo of Harris and Nash in the opening half. The 6-foot-2 Harris scored seven straight points as part of a 9-0 Shorter run that put the Lady Hawks up 16-6 with 13:58 to go in the opening frame.
Harris is the daughter of Benny and Annette Harris of Providence.
