Harris’ career-high 24 sparks Bartlett`

Kelly Harris had a lot of motivation to step up in the second half for her Bartlett girls basketball team Saturday.

“Kelly is not really a morning person,” said Hawks’ coach Denise Sarna, “and I reminded all of them at halftime that losing this game meant we would be playing at 9:30 Monday morning.”

Harris added: “Coach got in my face (at halftime) and told me I looked like I was going to cry out there. The first half was not good for me so I picked it up in the second half.”

And how. The 6-foot-1 junior scored 16 of her career-high 24 points in the final 16 minutes, including 10 in the fourth quarter, as the Hawks came from behind to beat Dundee-Crown 65-62 in a consolation bracket game of the 32nd annual Charger Classic at D-C.
