Asjha Jones helps Rivas Ecopolis into EuroLeague Final Eight

Former UConn star Asjha Jones had 13 points and eight rebounds as Rivas Ecopolis defeated Bourges Basket 64-56 on Wednesday to become the final team to qualify for the EuroLeague quarterfinals. Rivas Ecopolis earned the No. 4 seed in the tournament.

UConn will be well represented in the playoffs. Top-seeded Fenerbahce is led by former Huskies Tina Charles and Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore is a star for second-seeded Ros Casares while Sue Bird and Svetlana Abrosimova play for seventh-seeded UMMC Ekaterinburg.

As I mentioned on a blog entry a few days ago, UConn's Bria Hartley and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis are among 32 players on the midseason ballot for the Naismith Trophy. The winner of the Naismith Trophy will be announced on April 1.

Geno Auriemma is among 32 coaches up for Naismith's coach of the year award.
