Kelly Schumacher returning to basketball

After three years away from basketball as she played professional beach volleyball, former UConn center Kelly Schumacher will be returning to the basketball court. Schumacher, a member of the Huskies' 2000 national championship team, signed with Rivas Ecopolis out of Madrid, Spain.

Schumacher was a first-round pick of the Indiana Fever in the 2001 WNBA draft and played in the WNBA for four different teams from 2001-2009.

Speaking of former Huskies, Maya Moore and Diana Taurasi put on quite a show last night.

Moore had 26 points, 16 rebounds, five assists and two steals to lead the Minnesota Lynx to an 80-69 win over the Phoenix Mercury. Taurasi had 28 points and three assists. Taurasi and Moore are running 1 and 2 in the WNBA scoring race. After averaging 14 points in Phoenix's first two games of the season Taurasi has scored at least 21 points in every game since as she leads the league with a 23.7 scoring average.
