Auriemma Says Mosqueda-Lewis Feeling Better

by Categorized: Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, UConn women's basketball Date:

Sidelined with mononucleosis since just before UConn’s game at South Florida on Feb. 16, junior Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis is once again not with the team on its five-day trip to Texas.
But Geno Auriemma said Saturday her scheduled check-up on Friday in Connecticut was very encouraging.
“She is making great progress,” Auriemma said. “We get back to Connecticut early Wednesday morning [after Tuesday night’s game at SMU] and we will take another look at her on Thursday. If she looks good, then we can think about maybe getting her back out there. We may have to wait a little longer. But there certainly has been no setback.  All of the information I received [from the doctors] was very good.
“I would say more encouraging than discouraging, for sure.”
