EuroLeague playoffs resume tomorrow

Not only are six former UConn stars on teams still in the running for EuroLeague for Women title but when the playoffs resume, all six are in two matchups.

Maya Moore and her Ros Casares team will face the UMMC Ekaterinburg squad featuring Sue Bird and Svetlana Abrosimova on Wednesday in Pool B play. In Pool A there will be a showdown between Galatasaray (led by Tina Charles and Diana Taurasi) and the Asjha Jones' led Rivas Ecopolis.

How the next round works is there are two pools of four teams early and each team will play everybody in their pool once. The round robin play is scheduled for Wednesday-Friday. The teams with the best records advance to the championship game. There will also be third-place, fifth-place and seventh-place games.

Here's a look at how the six former Huskies have fared this season:
Abrosimova: 4 points, 1.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists
Bird: 9.3 points, 2.2 assists, 1.2 steals
Charles: 18.5 points, 8.6 rebounds
Jones: 17.4 points, 8.6 rebounds
Moore:: 15.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2 assists
Taurasi: 21 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists
