UConn women lose 2 players to injury

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

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.
