Mosqueda-Lewis listed as questionable

UConn sophomore forward Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis did some shooting drills early and late in Wednesday's practice and is considered to be questionable for tomorrow's game against Penn State because of a left quad contusion suffered in the first half of Monday's win over Maryland.

UConn coach Geno Auriemma said no decision will be made on her availability until tomorrow's shootaround.

"I think the official medical pronouncement is questionable," Auriemma said. "I talked to her today. I saw her this morning and she looked pretty good. I saw her this afternoon and she shot the ball a little bit. We'll see how she feels when she wakes up tomorrow, see how she looks at shootaround and then probably make the decision."

If Mosqueda-Lewis misses the game, it would be the second one she has needed to sit out this season after missing the Colgate contest with a concussion.

"That's the price you pay when you are a really good player," Auriemma said. "I remember Diana, nobody got beat up more than Diana Taurasi when she was here. It goes with the territory. If you are going to be a really good basketball player, you are going to have to take the hits  and give some, that is what basketball is. It's not the NBA 3-point shooting contest."
