A blog on UConn women's basketball.

Dolson delivers

UConn recruit Stefanie Dolson came one block shy of a triple-double as she had 34 points (one more than the entire Newburgh Free Academy team), 14 rebounds and nine blocks to lead her Minisink Valley of Slate Hill, N.Y. team to a 65-33 win on Thursday.

A couple other notes worth mentioning:
Wisconsin-Green Bay's 65-63 loss to Loyola leaves UConn and Nebraska as the only remaining undefeated teams in Division I women's basketball.

The big news out of Louisville is that senior center Chauntise Wright's eligibility ran out and she will not be able to play another game for the Cardinals. Wright's situation was discussed on the broadcast of the recent game against Notre Dame. The situation and sense of priorities of another Louisville player, however, isn't getting the same amount of attention as it should. Sophomore forward Gwen Rucker showed up late for the Notre Dame game because she had a chemistry class she could not miss. Rucker is not only a two-sport star as she is a member of the Louisville volleyball team but is the epitome of a true student-athlete.

UConn knows a thing about student-athletes. Another reminder came today when senior forward Meghan Gardler sprinted off the court so she could make it to class.

In case you haven't heard, UConn is bypassing its normal mode of transportation and taking the train to Philadelphia. Will be interesting to see what the players have to say about the journey after Saturday's game against Villanova.
