Here is what Geno Auriemma said after Saturday’s 85-51 win over Marquette about the injuries that kept Breanna Stewart out and limited Bria Hartley to five first-half minutes.
“Breanna stepped on Kaleena [Mosqueda-Lewis] foot,” Auriemma said. “She turned the ankle and that was that. Not much you can about those things.”
“Bria just rolled her ankle and we are waiting to see what’s going on,” Auriemma said. “I just thought it best not to push our luck [by playing her].
“Still, I am hopeful both of them will back by Tuesday,” Auriemma said. The Huskies play Louisville at the XL Center. “Some sprained ankles are worse than others. So we will see.”
