Geno Auriemma said Friday there has been no date set for the surgery that will repair the torn ACL in sophomore Brianna Banks’ right knee. She injured it last Saturday at St. John’s and will miss the remainder of the season.
“She’s had a very good attitude about it so far,” Kelly Faris said. “You can tell, she just wants to get it [the recovery] over with and get back.”
Auriemma said Banks began to leg strengthening exercises the day after the surgery and has been talking to Caroline Doty, who has had three knee surgeries in five years, to begin preparing for what’s to come. “No matter how much you try to explain to someone what it is going to be like, it’s hard until you actually go through it.”
Saniya Chong, the lone member of UConn’s 2013 freshman class, not only will play in the WBCA All-Star game in April in New Orleans, but is now New York state’s all-time leading scorer (2,664) and three-point producer.
