Very sad.

Tori Harrison, an All-America star at Towson Catholic and the No. 2 all-time scoring leader in area school girls basketball history, died May 15 at her mother’s home in Baltimore. She was 54.

Harrison, a 6-foot-4 center who also starred at Louisiana Tech and served as head coach at Coppin State, died of Machado-Joseph Disease, a rare genetic disorder that attacks the central nervous system. The disease also claimed her father, Laurence Harrison Sr., and brother, Larry Harrison Jr., a 6-foot-10 center at Towson Catholic and Wake Forest who died in 2003 at age 45.
Diagnosed with the degenerative disease in 1997, Tori Harrison used a wheelchair for 13 years and had increased health challenges for the past 18 months, said her sister, Cheryl Harrison, of Laurel, senior associate athletic director for development at the University of Maryland.

A standout at Louisiana Tech, Harrison was its Most Valuable Player for three seasons while leading the team to two NCAA Final Four appearances and a runner-up finish in 1987. She totaled 1,868 career points, 1,020 rebounds and a school-record 341 blocked shots, including nine in one game.

She played before my time but it sounds like she was a star and a dedicated WBB professional. RIP.

Her mother lost her husband and two of her children to the same disease. My heart is breaking for her.
