Ring presentation at Mohegan Sun tonight

UConn and U.S. national team coach Geno Auriemma will be in attendance at tonight's San Antonio Silver Stars/Connecticut Sun game at Mohegan Sun Arena so he can present 2010 World Championship rings to Tina Charles and Asjha Jones.

Charles started six of the nine games during the FIBA World Championships. She was the team's third-leading scorer, averaging 10.7 points per game, and her average of 4.8 rebounds per game was second on the squad. Jones averaged 5.1 points and 2.3 rebounds as the U.S. rolled to the title with nine straight wins. No word whether San Antonio's Jayne Appel, also a member of the gold-medal squad, will receive her ring at the same time or if they will have a special ceremony for her at a San Antonio home game.

The ring presentation will be made after the National Anthem and before the starting lineups are announced.
