Injury scare for UConn signee Gabby Williams

According to a report in the Daily Sparks Tribune, UConn signee Gabby Williams left the court after injuring her surgically-repaired knee.

The story said that her high school coach, Reed High's Sara Ramirez, believes that Williams "did not reinjure the knee" but that won't be known until after she meets with a knee specialist today.

"She jumps up so high and comes down with so much force, that’s just the way she plays the game” Ramirez said after the game. “It’s something she needs to get used to, and that’s what the trainer said. Sometimes with the scar tissue coming down, and moving a lot, it hurts worse.”

It is the second time that Williams left a game in tremendous pain within a week of a member of the UConn coaching staff watching her play. Last season she tore her ACL in the game after assistant coach Shea Ralph made the trip out to Nevada to watch Williams in action. Last night's game was exactly a week after UConn coach Geno Auriemma saw her record a triple double in a win over North Valleys.

Williams had eight points, five rebounds, two assists, five steals and a blocked shot in last night's  58-37 win. She is averaging 20.3 points, 8.1 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 4.5 steals and 1.8 blocks per game.
