UConn to play without two stars
STORRS, Conn. -- The UConn women's basketball team has lost two frontcourt players to injury just two games into the season.
The school said Wednesday that All-American Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis suffered a nerve contusion of her right elbow when she took a hard fall while coming down with a rebound in UConn's 76-57 win against No. 3 Stanford on Monday night.
The junior is out indefinitely, and will be re-evaluated next week.
The school said sophomore forward Morgan Tuck will miss four to six weeks after having arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday. The school said Tuck has had swelling in the knee due to a cartilage injury since the start of the season.
The top-ranked Huskies (2-0) visit No. 8 Maryland on Friday night and No. 13 Penn State on Sunday.
