Henry-Harris Named Director of Player Development at Georgia

Ebone Henry Harris — one of the greatest players in University of Albany women’s basketball history who was most recently on Katie Abrahamson-Henderson‘s staff at UCF— will serve as the Georgia Lady Bulldogs’ Director of Player Development. 
Coach ‘ABE’ made the announcement Tuesday afternoon, adding her fourth staff member since being named head coach on March 26. 
“I am thrilled to have Ebone in Athens,” Abrahamson-Henderson said. “She has been an instrumental part of our program over the last six years, and I know she will have the same impact here at Georgia. She is detail-oriented, meticulous and, as someone who has played the game at a high level, a tremendous example for our student-athletes. 
“As a player, Ebone became Albany’s all-time leading scorer and was also named conference Defensive Player of the Year on three occasions. Everything she did as a player was done at an elite level, and she continues to do that in her professional career.” 
Over the past six seasons at UCF, Henry-Harris has served as the assistant recruiting coordinator/video director, with a hand in nearly every facet of the program. 
She helped lead UCF to its first NCAA tournament bid, first NCAA tourney win and highest-ever seeding. The Knights also captured the 2022 American Athletic Conference regular season and tournament crowns. 
As a player, Henry-Harris finished her career as UAlbany’s all-time leading scorer with 1,642 career points. She was the first player ever to be named a three-time America East Defensive Player of the Year and was a 2013 College Sports Mid-Major All-American. 
For her efforts on the court, UAlbany also retired her No. 5 jersey. 
From 2013-16, she played professionally overseas for teams in Iceland, Puerto Rico, Montenegro and Bolivia, before joining Coach ‘ABE’s staff at UCF. 
Henry-Harris is a native of San Diego, Calif., and graduated from Albany in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in communication and rhetoric.
She is married to Jerrett Harris and the couple has a 4-year old daughter, Lyric Harris.
