Former UConn star in select company

ESPN the Magazine in conjunction with ESPNW has released a list of 33 female sports figures "who will change the way the game is played."

Making the list under the category of "The Fixer" is former UConn star Dr. Leigh Ann Curl, who became the first woman to be a team orthopedic surgeon in the NFL when she was hired to that position by the Baltimore Ravens.

Curl played at UConn from 1981-85 and when she graduated (with summa cum laude honors) she was UConn's third all-time leading scorer with 1,388 points.

The NCAA released a report on women's basketball attendance stating that it set a record of 11,210,832 which broke the mark of 11,160,293 set during the 2008-09 season.

Tennessee led all Division I teamsin average attendance per home game (14,414) with UConn ranking fourth (9,168).
