“Being able to have [Isabelle Harrison] come back and watching her rehab every day…just being able to see her work hard [is inspiring]. And I told her, ‘Remind people who you are. I haven’t forgotten who you are. I watched you when I was in college and being able to watch you at Tennessee’…I love a comeback story because they’re never easy,” Reese revealed during Thursday’s post-game press conference.



Isabelle Harrison had surgery to repair a left meniscus injury in May of 2023 and has been rehabbing ever since. The seventh-year forward progressed well and earned valuable minutes for the Sky early in the 2024 season. Harrison had her best performance of the season against the Mystics, notching 14 points and seven rebounds off the bench.

Head coach Teresa Weatherspoon spoke highly of Harrison’s impact, noting the energy she gave the Sky to help them regain momentum.



“When her name was called, she came in and gave us the energy, sparked us offensively. She was aggressive and continued rebounding the ball. So all those things we needed at the time, she gave us the energy to get us going. And as she continues to rehab, she continues to be stronger. [Harrison] is going to help us be a better basketball team,” Weatherspoon said.
