Geno thrilled that UConn signee Gabby Williams back on court

At some point today Geno Auriemma will place a call out to Nevada to offer his congratulations to UConn signee Gabby Williams, who played for the first time in 11 months in last night's win over Reno (the same team that she tore her ACL against as a junior).

Williams had 21 of her 24 points in the first half in a 50-47 win.

"I just think she is something special and I know it hurt her to not be able to play," Auriemma said. "There is a kid who loves to play, loves to compete and I am happy to have her back and on the court and I am anxious to go out and see her play."

The 2003 and 2004 national championship teams will be inducted into the Huskies of Honor before the Dec. 29 game against Cincinnati.

The timing allows Cincinnati head coach Jamelle Elliott, an assistant coach on those UConn teams, a chance to take part in the ceremony.

They will be the fourth and fifth women's teams to be part of the Huskies of Honor program joining the 1995, 2000 and 2002 squads.Ann Strother, Ashley Battle, Jessica Moore, Maria Conlon, Nicole Wolff and Stacey Marron are expected to be on hand for the ceremony.
