"We lost every game," she said Wednesday night with a smile.
It paid off, however.
"It made you want to compete a lot more," said Harris. "Everybody always says boys are faster and stronger, so it made you try to show a lot more and try to compete. It helped me out a lot."
That experience against the guys in Omaha made her better and made her tougher, and now she's one of the top players for the No. 1 junior college team in America.
Harris stuffed the stat sheet Wednesday with 20 points, seven steals, five rebounds and four assists as the top-ranked Kirkwood Eagles strolled to an 84-43 victory over John Wood Community College at Johnson Hall.
Kirkwood, which climbed into the No. 1 spot in the NJCAA Division II rankings this week, raised its record to a perfect 10-0.
"We all feel really good about it, but like Coach (Kim Muhl) tell us, everybody is out to beat us," said Harris, "so we practice two times as hard now what we are No. 1."Last Updated on Thursday, 15 December 2016 12:09
