Menlo College rallies in Cal Pac basketball but falls short


Julian Harris scored with eight seconds remaining to play to tie the game but host Holy Names came back to beat Menlo, 86-84, on a last-second shot in a Cal Pac Conference contest Saturday night.

Harris finished with 10 points for the Oaks (5-2, 9-12), who fell out of a first-place tie in the conference. Menlo has a chance to regain a share of the lead when Cal Pac leader Cal Maritime visits the Oaks on Thursday for a 7:30 p.m. tipoff.
