Heather Buck happy to be back

When Heather Buck felt the pain in her right wrist after tumbling to the court in a loss to Baylor earlier in this month, the junior forward/center was understandably concerned that she could be sidelined for a bit.

The wrist injury did force her to sit out the College of Charleston game but she returned to practice on Dec. 26 and is ready to return tonight against Fairfield.

"I had a lot of time to rest it. It was kind of lucky the way Christmas landed so I have been trying out some different stuff and see what works, trying to get me back as quickly as possible," Buck said.

"It hasn't been as bad as if could have been so it is good."

After a series of tests it was announced that Buck has a bone bruise. She will continue to receive treatment but is not expected to miss additional time.

Former UConn All-American Svetlana Abrosimova has not back been inside Gampel Pavilion since her No. 25 jersey was unveiled as part of the inaugural Huskies of Honor class back in 2006. So with Abrosimova in attendance for a ceremony honoring the 2001-02 UConn squad (she was a graduate assistant on the national championship squad), UConn covered over her placard so it could be unveiled for her during a halftime ceremony.
