Hartley playing it safe this time

Nobody can accuse Bria Hartley of being a slow learner.

A year ago she played through the pain in her left ankle during the preseason and by the time she let on that there was something bothering her she had done enough damage that the gimp[y ankle impacted her play for most of the season.

With what UConn and U.S. coach Geno Auriemma termed a "tweak" of that same ankle, Hartley opted to stay back in Storrs and pass on the chance to take part in this weekend's U.S. national team training camp.

The move was merely precautionary and she certainly could have played and/or practiced on the ankle if she needed to but she was wisely erring on the side of caution.

On Monday Hartley said she was pretty excited about getting the chance to take part in the national team camp.

"I am really excited," Hartley said "Vegas, I don't think it can get any better than that. It will be cool to see some of the Olympians that are going to be there and WNBA players it will be cool to play against them to see where you are at/"

Her teammates Stefanie Dolson, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Breanna Stewart all made it out to Las Vegas for the training camp which kicks off today.
