UConn's Dolson is "good to go"

UConn senior center Stefanie Dolson was able to practice without restriction on Thursday, two days after she hurt her right foot and ankle in a win over Temple.

"I was good," Dolson said. "I was able to do everything. It is nothing crazy, just a tiny little bruise. It looked and felt worse than it it so I am good to go."

Dolson, who will make her 23rd straight start this season when UConn plays at Cincinnati on Saturday afternoon, will get to see Cincinnati coach Jamelle Elliott (who was involved early in the recruitment of Dolson before heading to coach the Bearcats) perhaps for the final time on a basketball court.

"It is always cool to see Jamelle, just the history she has her and she is such a fun spirit and anytime you see her she is laughing and having a good time," Dolson said. "It (stinks) it is the last time I will see her in this (setting) but we will see each other again I am sure."

Not only will UConn honor its student-athletes who attained a 3.0 grade point average either in the spring or fall semester at halftime of the Feb. 4 game against SMU but there is also a promotion for kids who also take care of business in the classroom.

Kids 13 and under who bring a paper or quiz on which they received an A grade from their teacher, will receive free admission to the game by bringing  their A-paper or quiz to the North Entrance on game day starting at 5:30 p.m.  Any accompanying family members will be able to purchase $10 tickets to the game.
