Almost Time To Say Goodbye To Dolson And Hartley

by Categorized: 2014 NCAA women's tournament, Bria Hartley, Stefanie Dolson, UConn women's basketball Date:

Stefanie Dolson and Bria Hartley play their final UConn home games on Tuesday. Dolson will play her 150th game, making her 148th start, tying Renee Montgomery for the most in program history. Hartley will play in her 149th game, now just 78 points from becoming only the eighth player in program history to score 2,000 points. Dolson (1,049) also needs just six rebounds to pass Jamelle Elliott into fourth place among UConn rebounders.
Dolson is still getting herself back into game shape after struggling through the effects of a bad cold that sapped her strength. And finally playing Sunday after almost two weeks off following the AAC championship game on March 10 only made it harder.
“It started with flu-like symptoms and then turned into a really bad head cold,” Dolson said. “There were about five days when I really didn’t do much of anything. So I’ve been trying to get my legs and my lungs back to where they should be [endurance]. It’s definitely getting there. I felt better than I thought I would [Sunday night].”
