Breanna Stewart downplays her calf injury

If it were left up to UConn freshman Breanna Stewart, she would not have been reduced to the role of spectator in Saturday's NCAA tournament opener against Idaho.

However, after feeling some discomfort in her left calf in Friday's practice, the decision was made to sit her for the game.

Stewart went through some of the pre-game warmups and seemed to move without any issues but she understood that it is better to be safe than sorry especially with the Huskies easily outclassing the WAC tournament champions.

Following the Huskies' 105-37 win Stewart discussed how the injury happened.

"It was just in practice yesterday just taking off, I felt uncomfortable," Stewart said. "I think I am all right, they said I am all right and it was more of a precaution. I would have like to have played today."
