Harrison Home with the Wolfpack
Lizzy Harrison will suit up for the Wolves for her fifth outing in the WBBL in 2020/21 season.
Harrison, a 5’11’’ guard and Suffolk native, started her Oaklands journey in 2009 as a college athlete, making her effectively part of the furniture. A four and a half year college career in the states in between spells as a Wolf, Harrison has been as influential on the Wolves progression as anyone at College.
The talented shooting guard has continued to deliver for the Hertfordshire outfit, getting better year on year, with last season averages of 9.5 points, 1.5 assists and 3.5 rebounds, she was on course to have her best season until it was curtailed due to the pandemic.
Coach Ryan’s relationship with his player goes beyond basketball, something he appreciates more each year “Lizzy is as much part of my Oaklands journey as I am hers, with the pandemic hitting last season none us us knew what the future would hold. To have a season starting and Lizzy back on my roster is everything, she brings so much to the program in so many ways, somehow i’m managing to persuade her to keep coming back” he laughs “She was having a great year last season, like most players with outstanding power and athleticism their best basketball is seen when they start to slow down, which means I’m confident we will see even better performances from her in the year ahead.”
Harrisons influence on the team goes beyond the court. The talented designer continues to lead the way in her off court media role with the Wolfpack as her style and creativity has seen a huge increase in the franchises following. On both fronts, Harrison is just happy to be able to be involved in the sport she loves for another season "After everything 2020 has thrown at us, I’m just so happy to be able to step on court again and be back surrounded by all the amazing people at this club. This is one of the most talented Wolves teams I’ve been apart of, and I’m really excited to see what we can do this season.”
