On a rare and unusual occasion, the Texas Longhorns junior guard Rori Harmon wasn’t a part of the team’s success at the Moody Center. As per the latest sources, the talented No. 3 is suffering from some sort of injury. Although, the nature and extent of her injury are not clear. In addition to this, head coach Vic Schaefer refused to comment on Harmon’s current state in his post-game media media address. He said, “We’ll have something for you tomorrow. I promise.” Moreover, according to reports from the Associated Press, Rori was seen at the Moody Center walking with a limp before the game.

Her absence is a concern for the team considering the fact that they are already missing their No.44 Taylor Jones. The senior forward has been out of action following her hip injury. Harmon’s recent injury is not the first of her career. In the 2022-23 season, she was forced to sit out the first five games due to a foot injury.
