Battle cut by Liberty

Former UConn guard/forward Ashley Battle was waived by the New York Liberty on Tuesday.

Battle played the last four seasons with New York, averaging 5.1 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 0.8 steals.

Battle, a 27-year-old native of Pittsburgh, was a second-round by Seattle in 2005 but only played two games with the Storm.

Battle was a member of three national championship teams at UConn and had 1,054 points in 149 games for the Huskies. Her 149 games played was an NCAA record before it was broken first by UConn's Renee Montgomery and then by the Huskies' Kalana Greene, who will likely be asked to deliver much of the energy and defensive presence that Battle provided for the Liberty over the last four seasons.
