Auriemma Says KML And Tuck Probable For Duke

Geno Auriemma’s plan for the return of Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Morgan Tuck wasn’t really his.
It was designed by UConn’s athletic training and medical staff, both of whom are more familiar about the turnovers that often stymie rehabilitation game plans.
Auriemma knows the chance of not having two of his core available for Tuesday’s 1-2 showdown at Duke wouldn’t be isn’t as important as not having them around for a possible rematch come April.
But that won’t be the case Tuesday. Auriemma said both Mosqueda-Lewis (elbow) and Tuck (knee) are probable for the game.
“Kaleena’s been practicing based on how she feels,” Auriemma said Sunday. “Sometimes she’s worked for an hour, sometime for just 45 minutes. It just depends. So we’ll see how she feels Tuesday and that will determine how much she plays.”
Both have been out since Nov. 11. Mosqueda-Lewis suffered a compressed nerve in her right elbow in fall; Tuck had arthroscopic surgery on her left knee Nov. 12.
“They are both probable,” Auriemma said. “It’s just a matter of how much they can play.”
