The Bulldogs, who ran their record to 6-0, are ranked 12th in the Associated Press and USA Today/ESPN polls, while Harris was tabbed the WCC Player of the Week.

Harris, a 6-foot-8, 240-pound senior from Speyer, Germany, scored a season-high 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds – the 23rd double-double of his career – against Davidson College in leading the Bulldogs to their second Old Spice Classic Championship. The first came in 2008.
