Freshman Morgan Tuck did not play in Wednesday’s win at Georgetown because of the recurrence of pain in her balky right knee. And according to Geno Auriemma, she should be considered questionable for Saturday’s Big East game at Marquette.
Auriemma said Wednesday that the Huskies, who are flying back to Connecticut today, will not practice Thursday once they return home. That means the medical staff will not have a good idea about how Tuck is doing until Friday, at the earliest.
“Last night we got back to the hotel and I got a message from [athletic trainer] Rosemary [Ragle] saying Morgan is a no-go for [Georgetown],’’ Auriemma said. “Now she’ had a day to rehab and she usually bounces back pretty good [when she does]. Hopefully she’ll be ready to go on Saturday.’’
Auriemma was looking forward to having all four posts – Tuck. Stef Dolson, Breanna Stewart and Kiah Stokes – together for the first time in a very long time.
Stokes returned Wednesday after missing five games with a stress reaction in her lower right leg
