Kevin Knox isn’t the only Kentucky basketball player making headlines throughout the SEC this week. UK Hoops’ Dorie Harrison was named the SEC Freshman of the Week following her career-high performance against Arkansas Monday night.
The freshman was the team’s leading scorer for the first time last night, scoring 16 points and adding four rebounds, two steals and one block in the Cats’ victory over the Razorbacks. The performance marked her second-consecutive career night; she recorded a previous-best 15 points against Alabama last Thursday.
Combining the previous two games, Harrison has scored 31 points while shooting nearly 50 percent from the field. She’s also added a total of nine rebounds, two blocks and three steals. After a rough patch for the Hoops team, Harrison’s strong efforts have helped the Cats’ record bounce back to break-even: the team’s record is now 11-11 on the season and 3-5 in the conference.
