Bria Hartley continues to work way back from injury
"The last two days she said it felt really good," Auriemma said before Thursday's practice. "What's today? Thursday? It feels a lot better than it feels Sunday so that is a good sign. I am really, really optimistic not about this weekend but that she will be back soon."
Auriemma is hoping that Hartley will be back in time for the Nov. 22 game against Wake Forest in the Paradise Jam but reiterated that she will need to be at 100 percent before she gets back on the court.
