Shanel Harrison gone from Virginia Tech

Citing a violation of team rules, Virginia Tech senior Shanel Harrison has been dismissed from the team, head coach Dennis Wolff announced Tuesday.

A 6-0 guard from Washington, Harrison led the Hokies in scoring (12.2 ppg) and rebounding (5.5 rpg) in 2010-11. She also made the all-tournament teams at the Caribbean Challenge and the Hilton Garden Hokie Classic, was an ACC Player of the Week and dropped a career-high 27 points on Boston College. Our favorite memory of Harrison last season was her draining a 3-pointer with 3.4 seconds remaining to force overtime against William and Mary. The Hokies went on to win the game; Harrison finished with a then-career-high 25 points.

“We wish Shanel the best as she pursues other opportunities, “ Wolff said in a release that also indicated the school would have no further comment.  

Harrison is the second Tech player with eligibility remaining that will no longer be part of the program. In April, freshman Kyani White transferred to East Carolina; White's father cited concerns over Wolff's coaching style.
