Former King’s Fork High School standout Camary Harris season ended in the opening round of the NCAA tournament on Saturday.

Harris was a part of a historic season for the Bethune-Cookman University women’s basketball team. As a freshman, she was able to step in and be a part of a team that made its first ever NCAA tournament appearance in women’s hoops.

BCU entered the tournament as a sixth seed that faced a No. 1 seed in Notre Dame. They took a 92-50 loss last Saturday in the opening round of the tournament. Harris played 31 minutes that game, scoring five points and dishing out five assists in front of a crowd of about 8,000. She got the start last Saturday for BCU as well.

The former Lady Bulldog finished her freshman season averaging 19.7 minutes per game to go along with 5.4 points per game. She had 1.7 assists per game and 2.6 rebounds per game. She started 14 of possible 31 games.

Her freshman campaign earned her a spot on the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference All-Rookie team. She also was selected MEAC Rookie of the Week twice.

The bar will be raised even higher for Harris next season as she will try to help lead the way to a second NCAA tournament appearance for the team. Even more accolades could be headed her way in her sophomore season.

At King’s Fork, Harris saw a successful four-year career in which King’s Fork made a state championship appearance and multiple semifinal appearances.
