Harris named Cal Pac men's basketball Player of the Week

Fulp-Allen repeats as WCWA national champion, will join tour to Germany

Junior guard Julian Harris is on a scoring spree and he's taking the Menlo College men's basketball team along with him.

Harris was named Cal Pac Conference Player of the Week for the second time this season, it was announced Tuesday.

Harris was 10-of-13 from the field, including 6-of-8 from 3-point range, and scored 26 points in Menlo's 84-60 victory over Simpson on Thursday.

He followed that with another sharp shooting effort as the Oaks (3-4, 7-13) upset previously unbeaten Holy Names, 67-66, on Saturday. His jumper in the final 33 seconds left was the margin of victory.

He scored 23 points to lead Menlo and averaged 24.5 points while shooting 72 percent from the field and 72.7 percent from beyond the arc. He's a 45 percent shooter from long range.

Menlo College senior Katherine Fulp-Allen finished her collegiate career with a second straight national title, beating Missouri Baptist's Amy Whitbeck, 2-2, 1-0, at 51 kg. in the WCWA championships Sunday at Missouri Valley College.

The four-time All-American was also named WCWA Wrestler of the Year.

Fulp-Allen earned a spot on the U.S. team that will tour to Dormogen, Germany over the summer.

Fulp-Allen defeated Oklahoma City's Logan Rich by a technical fall, 3-1, 7-0, in the first round and then shut out Cumberlands' Rachel Woodruff, 4-0, 4-0.

A pin over Wisconsin's Emily Harper, at 3:16, in the semifinal put Fulp-Allen in the championship match.

Also a member of the U.S. women's wrestling national team; she is scheduled to compete in the Dave Schultz International this weekend at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.
