PHOENIX, June 26 (UPI) -- Lisa Harrison collected 22 points and 10 rebounds for her second career double-double Wednesday night as the Phoenix Mercury posted a 60-53 victory over Seattle Storm.
Harrison had a run-in with former coach Cynthia Cooper on Sunday and was benched for 13 minutes in a victory over Minnesota. On Wednesday, Cooper resigned and was replaced on an interim basis by assistant Linda Sharp.
Harrison was 10 of 13 from the floor and registered her first double-double since July 11, 2001 against Minnesota.
Seattle had a 42-40 lead with 12:41 left, but the Mercury responded with an 8-0 run, capped by two free throws by Harrison.
The Storm got within 53-51 with 2:47 to play on a layup by rookie Sue Bird, but the Mercury closed on a 9-2 burst.
Jennifer Gillom, who added 20 points, scored 14 in the second half and seven during the decisive run.
Lauren Jackson had 13 points to lead Seattle, which had won three of the previous four meetings with Phoenix.
