DeShields expects to return to action soon

According to an Atlanta Journal Constitution blog post, UConn recruiting target Diamond DeShields could be back soon after missing six games with an injured wrist.

"She sees the doctor today (today) and we’ll just have to see,’’ Norcross coach Angie Hembree said in the blog post. “We’ve played six games without her. We’ve lost to two pretty good teams (North Gwinnett and Mill Creek). We’re going to get her back this week. I think we’re going to be fine. It’s a marathon, not a (sprint). We’re hanging in there."

Keeping on the subject of the state playoffs, UConn signees Morgan Tuck and Breanna Stewart will begin state tournament play this week.

Tuck will lead her Bolingbrook (Ill.) High team against either Downers Grove North or Plainfield North in the semifinals of the Naperville (Neuqua Valley) Sectional tomorrow.  If Bolingbrook wins tomorrow, it would advance to the regional finals on Thursday.

Stewart's Cicero-North Syracuse (N.Y.) team also received a first-round bye and will play the winner of the Rome Free Academy/Nottingham game on Friday in New York's Section III Class AA tournament. The section final is set for Mar. 2 at the Carrier Dome.
