Mosqueda-Lewis Now Likely A Game Time Decision

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

UConn will find out during Thursday’s shoot-around if sophomore Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis will play. She sustained a left quad injury in the first half of the Maryland game and did not play in the second half.

“I believe the official medical pronouncement for her would be “questionable,” Auriemma said. “She looked good today, shot the ball a little. We’ll see how we feels when she gets up and at the shoot-around.”

KML participated in shooting drills on Wednesday, nothing too strenuous. She had just returned from a concussion that kept her out of the Colgate game on Nov. 28.

She participated in what UConn called “functional drills” on Wednesday, as well.

“It shows you can run up and down the floor and cut,” Auriemma said. “You all the things you need to do in basketball terms. Doing wind sprints and saying you feel good is not going to get it done.”

    Just saw ND try to beat up on Baylor, and for a half they were pretty effective. The Fighting Irish haven’t lost their physicality. Diggins looks the same, but McBride is bigger. It was a good game to watch for the defensive intensity, and the Lady Bears were able to hold Diggins in check, so there was a lesson there, keeping her away from the rim. Of course, Griner was back there. Coming off an injury or not, Sims is the real deal. If the Huskies can stay out of foul trouble, they should have a good chance against both teams. Just sayn’.

      Diggins has been held in check all year. She’s shooting 36% and averaging 4 TO’s a game. Highly overrated by the media.

      Saw the same game. ND was in the game up to 4 minutes left in the second half. Diggins is just OFF, not defended. The ND Freshman Loyd is amazing has no nerves, ala DT. ND has a group of good players. ND packed the paint and beat up Williams and Griner–shades of things to come.

      It was a fun game to watch, since I didn’t care who won. One evil empire is like another. Liked Mulkey–she sums up well.

    Sims did a Kelly on Diggins tonight. Skylar, just like Alyssa Thomas is just another overrated All American wannabe. Kelly is the real deal and it looks like Sims is too. The Slugging Irish do have a GEM though. Her name is Jewell Lloyd. Morgan Tuck knows her too well.

      Sims was terrible for the first 10 minutes of the game caused 6 turnover by herself. No Diggy didn’t defend her. Ochoa was exceptional in the center and defending Griner in the First Half.
      LOYD (ONLY ONE L). She is a Jewell. Tuck is tougher but Jewell has no conscience, shoots without thinking, and make em. McBride is better NOW than Diggy.
      Dolson and Stewart will get bumped pushed brused, held, pushed, stomped in the paint at ND–count on it.

  3. ND isnt My Favorite Team

    I got angry/upset/uninary when diggins did her typical tap the ball from behind doggie trick.
    I’m sure Mulkey would agree, they created 10 fouls for ever 2 called (ND on Baylor)
    They packed the lane tightly–Is this the new defense of the decade?? ND also did their typical lying down as a player approached and got fouls on Baylor–when are the Ref’s going to see the obvious??
