UConn signee in a holding pattern

UConn incoming freshman Gabby Williams was able to return to the basketball court but until she gets an MRI on her injured right knee, she isn't expected to play for her Reed (Nev.) High team according to her father Matt.

Matt Williams said that the MRI on the knee she injured on Tuesday is expected to be done at some point today but he said she is not likely to play in tonight's game against top rival Reno High.

"She practiced yesterday and said she felt good but wasn't at 100 percent," Matt Williams said. "She could play today but if she is not 100 percent, she is not going to play."

Matt Williams said once the results of the MRI are in then a decision will be made on whether she returns to the court for her high school team this season.

The good news is all signs point to the injury being less severe than the torn ACL she suffered as a junior.

Update: Williams did play against Reno and finished with 16 points before leaving  the game in the fourth quarter due to the troublesome right knee.

Mallory McGwire, a 6-foot-4 sophomore who Williams father recommended that Geno Auriemma take a look at, had 12 points, 13 rebounds and seven blocks in Reno's 46-33 win.
