Andrea Harrison Named Pacific-10 Conference Player of the Week

March 15, 2011

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Junior Andrea Harrison has been named Pacific-10 Conference Player of the Week after an outstanding weekend at the Long Beach Marriott Invitational that saw her post 12 hits in 16 at-bats for a .750 batting average to go with 10 runs batted in, five runs scored, two home runs and five doubles. Harrison slugged 1.438 for the weekend and had a .778 on base percentage.

Harrison opened the weekend with a pair of two-hit games on Friday. Against Sacramento State, the junior posted a pair of doubles, scored a run and also drew a walk. Harrison added a double and a solo home run in the nightcap versus Long Beach State.

On Saturday against Cal State Fullerton, Harrison recorded her first-career, four-hit game, driving in four runs. All of her hits were singles, as she knocked in a pair in the first inning and one apiece in the fourth and fifth frames. The junior notched a double and a walk in Saturday's second contest versus BYU, scoring twice.

Harrison closed the weekend with another excellent performance against Saint Mary's, going 3-for-3 with five runs batted in. In the first inning, she got the Bruins on the board with an RBI single. Harrison added an RBI single in the second and crushed a three-run homer in the third.

Harrison leads the Bruins with eight home runs, 28 runs batted in and a .784 slugging percentage. She is also second with seven doubles and 16 walks, fourth with a .495 on base percentage and 21 runs scored and fifth with a .365 batting average.

Harrison is the second Bruin to earn Pac-10 Player of the Week honors this season. Freshman Alyssa Tiumalu received the accolade on March 1.

Harrison is now a two-time, Pac-10 Player of the Week honoree after also earning the award on May 3, 2010. The Bruins have 63 Pac-10 POW awards all-time.
