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.
