Connecticut guard Brianna Banks has undergone surgery to repair
the knee ligament she tore in February.
The school issued a statement saying Thursday’s surgery was a

The sophomore point guard tore her right anterior cruciate
ligament on Feb. 2 during a 71-65 win at St. John’s.
Banks averaged 7.3 points over 21 games this season backing up
junior Bria Hartley.
UConn (29-4) is coming off a loss to Notre Dame in the Big East
championship game, but is expected to be a top seed in the NCAA
tournament. Hartley has been sharing the point guard duties with
freshman Moriah Jefferson and senior Caroline Doty.
