Banks Could Be Back For Temple

by Categorized: Brianna Banks, Temple women's basketball, UConn women's basketball Date:

It’s likely the Huskies may have junior guard Brianna Banks back for Tuesday’s game at Temple.

A tender left ankle has limited her to three minutes in the last two games. She did not play at all Sunday when the Huskies routed South Florida.

According to a program spokesman, Banks looked well during Monday’s practice prior to the team’s departure for Temple. And if all goes well during Tuesday’s shoot-around and pregame, UConn’s number of available players could swell to eight.

Of course, that also depends on the health of freshman Saniya Chong, who was too ill to play on Sunday.
