        3. Brittany Hrynko, DePaul

        I think Joanie was asking why so many.

        So, don’t be so condesending…

  1. Mystery Guest

    Congratulations to all Uconn players for being mentioned. Tuck deserved mention on the Freshman team, but maybe she lacked sufficient number of games.
    Could ND have gotten more names in?? I think the forgot M.Kowlakowski –the Janitor.

  2. Gentle Jim

    Tuck deserved to be on the Freshman team. Maybe she didn’t play enough games to get on the list.
    Could ND have gotten more people in the awards? M Kowalkowski missed being on the ND list by a tiny amount.
    M Kowalkowski–the Pavalion janitor.
