Svetlana Abrosimova retires from Russian national team

Former UConn star Svetlana Abrosimova announced on her official Twitter account that she has retired from the Russian national team.

Here is what she wrote on her page

I decided not to come back to my national team. It was always an honor to represent my country. Thank u for supporting me for last 14 years.

Abrosimova played on Russia's 2000 and 2008 Olympic team and was a member of the bronze-medal winning squad in 2008. She was left off the 2012 Olympic squad. She averaged 7.8 points and 5.1 rebounds in 15 career Olympic games.

Anybody in Storrs today can stop into the Daily Bar and order the " “GR8 Celebration Cake Ice Cream.”

GR8 Celebration Cake Ice Cream has a sweet cake batter base with eight candy sprinkles, representing each of the eight national championships won the by the women’s basketball team under the leadership of Hall of Fame head coach Geno Auriemma.

The special flavor was developed by the ice cream-making staff at the UConn Creamery, a part of the Department of Animal Science and CANR.  The ice cream was produced on Tuesday and is undergoing the freezing process that will allow the final product to be available in the Dairy Bar (3636 Horsebarn Hill Road Extension) on Thursday.

Also, Kelly Faris and Bria Hartley will be among the UConn student-athletes modeling UConn's new uniforms with the new logo at Gampel Pavilion this afternoon.
