Harrison back for Lady Vols' NCAA tourney opener

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee center Isabelle Harrison is healthy enough to return to the Lady Vols' lineup just in time for the NCAA tournament.

Harrison, a 6-foot-3 sophomore, missed 10 games this season with three separate injuries. She feels about 90 percent healthy as the second-seeded Lady Vols (24-7) prepare to face No. 15 seed Oral Roberts (18-12) in Saturday's first round of the Oklahoma City Regional. No. 7 seed Syracuse (24-7) meets No. 10 seed Creighton (24-7) in the other opening-round game.

Harrison underwent surgery to repair the lateral meniscus in her left knee Feb. 1, an injury that caused her to miss six games. Harrison missed Tennessee's last three contests with an injured right knee, and she also sat out a Dec. 18 loss to Baylor with an ankle injury.
