Hartley, Stewart Are Doubtful For Louisville

by Categorized: Breanna Stewart, Bria Hartley, UConn women's basketball Date:

Neither Bria Hartley or Breanna Stewart practiced Sunday. They are being listed as doubtful for Tuesday’s game against Louisville at the XL Center.

Stewart hurt her ankle Friday when she stepped on Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis’ foot during a rebounding drill. She did not play in Saturday’s 85-51 win over Marquette.

Hartley rolled her chronically sore left ankle early in the first half and played only five minutes.

Auriemma said after Saturday’s game that he was hopeful both would be able to play Tuesday.

    UConn’s win over Stanford at Maples just lost a lot of wow factor with Cal winning by 12

    Stanford fans complaining Cal beat on Chiney. :-) Oh, so only the Ogwumike Sisters are allowed the Jordan Rules? Chiney would fit in perfectly with Bill Lamebeer’s bad girls style of play in the WNBA.

      I’m a basketball fan. I watched the S.U/U Cal game. The refs were pretty good, except they allowed Cal to really beat up Chiney. They took a page out of Geno’s game plan and executed it well. Not to UConn’s tempo however.
      All we can say about Stewart and Hartley is that Stewart as a big shall be missed more than Hartley. We’ve only seen glimpses of Hartley’s huge talent so far this year. Stewart’s size and her mobility are important in games against team of size.

      tell me about it lol gouconn also skylardiggins and britneygriner get special treatment from the refs and muffett mcgraw and kimmulkey still complain in interviews when their teams are up by 20+ at half lol

    Stewie is very rough and slow in her development. Is not a defensive help and probably has missed more lay ups than several team members combined. Has not yet been a factor against better teams. We continue to await her potential’s full arrival. Ned’s a big game against a good team.

    It’s a crying shame that Hartley was allowed to compete in a next-to-meaningless 3X3 competition last summer. It’s like letting your players go sky-diving. She will now struggle throughout this season thus causing damage to the chances of a national title.

    Stewart will improve. Compare Dolson now to her freshman year.
