STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ The Connecticut women’s basketball team has lost two frontcourt players to injury, two games into the season.
The school said Wednesday that All-American Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis sustained a nerve contusion of her right elbow when she took a hard fall while coming down with a rebound in UConn’s 76-57 victory over 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 between four and six weeks after having arthroscopic surgery Tuesday on her right knee. The school says 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.
