LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A University of Kentucky women's basketball player is out indefinitely as a result of personal health reasons.

Coach Matthew Mitchell announced sophomore center Dorie Harrison will be out for an unknown period of time.

“Dorie needs to step away from the basketball court to address her personal health. We will give her the time she needs to get healthy and she has our full support. We look forward to her return to the court. We ask everyone to respect her privacy during this time,” Mitchell said.

Harrison played 32 games and averaged 6.7 points to go along with 3.8 rebounds per game as a freshman. She was in the starting lineup eight times.

The women's team will open its regular season at Memorial Coliseum Nov. 7 when they take on Alabama State.
