Hoops Earns 16-Point Victory Over Harvard
Nov. 28, 2004
LOS ANGELES -- Freshman Brynn Cameron led with 18 points as the USC women's basketball team defeated Harvard, 74-58, at the Sports Arena on Sunday afternoon. Cameron hit 4-of-6 three-pointers off the bench to guide the Women of Troy (2-2) and give the Crimson (3-1) their first loss of the year.
The game remained close throughout until a 16-4 Trojan run in the final five minutes sealed the 16-point victory.
USC trailed by as much as 12 points (21-9) to start the game before climbing back by holding Harvard to three points over a six-minute span. Sophomore center Chloé Kerr sparked a 15-point effort with six points of her own, and added a block and a steal on the defensive end. USC earned its first lead of the game at the five-minute mark, 26-24, and entered the lockerroom ahead 33-32.
The Crimson hit a three-pointer and two jumpers to start the second half and regained the advantage, 39-34. The two teams alternated leads seven times until the Women of Troy eventually pulled ahead 56-54 at 7:50 and never looked back.
While Kerr collected 12 of her career-high 14 points just in the first half, Cameron took over in the second half and hit 4-of-6 three-pointers for her game-high 18 points. Cameron's four three-pointers rank ninth among USC game records.
The Women of Troy return to the court on Sunday, Dec. 5, when they host Loyola Marymount at 2 p.m. at the Sports Arena.
