Incoming UConn freshmen Bria Hartley, Stephanie Dolson and Samarie Walker are among 26 players who have accepted invitations to the U.S. national under-18 trials in Colorado June 8-11, USA Basketball announced on Monday. The team is coached by the University of Hartford's (and UConn alum) Jen Rizzotti.
You can tell that I am missing my Huskies basketball.
Congrats to Rebecca Lobo on her induction into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame this weekend. Only fitting that she goes into the Hall of Fame first, since she was the figure head of the program back in the mid-90s. Congrats, Rebecca. You, and coach Geno, are opening the doors for future Huskies to follow.
Tina Charles racked up another award from the WNBA. Tina Charles has been awarded Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors. Charles, helped the Sun to a 2-0 record this past week as she led the WNBA in rebounding with 15.5 rpg and paced the Eastern Conference with 25.0 points per outing.
Through 11 games, Charles has helped the Sun to the top spot in the Eastern Conference with an 8-3 (.727) mark. Overall, she is the WNBA’s top rebounder (11.0 rpg) and ranks 13th in scoring (16.3 ppg, tops among rookies).
Charles had arguably the best game of her professional career on June 18, when she netted a career-high 26 points and set a franchise record with 19 rebounds in a 78-75 win over the host Los Angeles Sparks. In that same game, her 13 made field goals also tied a Connecticut Sun single-game mark. Just two days later, Charles led Connecticut past the defending champion Phoenix Mercury with 24 points and 12 rebounds. Along the way, the Queens, N.Y. native and University of Connecticut product picked up her eighth double-double of the season, four shy of the franchise record, in only 11 games. She has led the Sun in rebounding in 10 of 11 games.
I'm an Orange fan, I was just busting your balls. I think Wesley Johnson and Syracuse shocked a lot of people.
I hope UConn gets back on the top 4 of the Big East as well. Feels weird seeing West Virginia there.
It's all good, playa. I figured u were messing around. The Cuse had a great year last season; 30-5!! Dang. The Big East is loaded. Plus you gotta throw in the fact that St John's will be back in the mix soon, things are going to get interesting.
