It should be to the surprise of absolutely nobody in Medfield that former MHS basketball star Maggie McCarthy is doing big things this fall for the Harvard women’s basketball team. A sophomore guard, the Medfield native has logged an average of 36 minutes a game during Harvard’s 3-2 start to the 2019-2020 season, starting in all five games.
During Harvard’s 68-51 victory against Siena on November 12, McCarthy recorded 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting (3-for-9 on 3-pointers), her second career double-figure scoring performance. McCarthy also logged eight rebounds, four assists and a steal while playing a team-high 37 minutes.
In the Crimson’s 56-53 victory against California on November 8, McCarthy scored four points to along with seven rebounds and three assists. On November 15 against La Salle, McCarthy scored nine points while logging three assists, three rebounds, a steal and a block.
After dropping two straight, McCarthy and the Crimson will look to get back on track when Harvard hosts Hartford on November 22.
