UConn's Fab Five to be reunited?

Considering that the WNBA will give the assorted media 30 minutes to speak to the 22 WNBA All-Stars tomorrow, I decided to corner Asjha Jones before yesterday's game to get a jump of the UConn reunion stories.

I'll save the details of the interview for the stories I will be writing but she did say that Tamika (Williams) Raymond is hoping to make it to Connecticut for the festivities. If that is the case, I believe it would be the first time all five members of the starting lineup of UConn's 2001-02 national championship team will be together since the celebrations after leading the Huskies to the third of the program's six national titles. As I am sure you have heard, the other four starters on that team (Jones, Sue Bird, Swin Cash and Diana Taurasi) will be playing in Saturday's WNBA All-Star Game.

The big question is whether Tamika will be the approval to make the trip since the all-star weekend falls during the recruiting evaluation period and she is an assistant coach at Kansas. It would certainly add to a memorable weekend if she could be there to see her former teammates playing back in the state where they matured from gifted high school players to stars on quite possibly the best women's college basketball team of all time.
