Doty glad hiatus was a brief one

Caroline Doty practiced without restriction today - or at least as close to "without restriction" as one can with three torn ACLs. She is slated to return to the lineup on Saturday when UConn plays South Florida after missing Wednesday's game against Syracuse with a bone bruise in her left knee.

UConn coach Geno Auriemma said Doty will return to her role as a starter while Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis will go back to being the first player of the bench.

"I wanted to be smart and not fight through it," said Doty, who asked out of the Jan. 21 game against DePaul with 17:40 remaining in the first half. "I've learned from the past that if you fight through something it possibly could get worse. I am trying to be smarter this time around so it is only a few days and not a few months down the road. I guess it takes three ACL tears to realize what's worth fighting through."

Doty said she first felt something during pregame warmups but it wasn't until after a collision early in the DePaul game that she asked to be taken out of the game. She did not return.
