UConn's Jefferson admires fighting spirit of Texas team

When the Texas women's basketball team went into a tailspin after the team's leading scorer and rebounder suffered a season-ending knee injury, more than a few people wrote the Longhorns off.

UConn junior guard Moriah Jefferson, who happens to be the first Texas native to play for the Huskies, was not one of them.

Jefferson played with plenty of the Texas players on the AAU circuit and got to know them  while growing up in Texas. So to see Texas in the Sweet 16, Jefferson is not shocked about that.

"I know all of those guys," Jefferson said. "I know they all have really big hearts so I am not really surprised. I knew a lot of their guards would step up and post players would come in to make the big shots in games so I am not surprised."

Looks like there will be a few more people in the stands for UConn's next game than for the two NCAA tournament games held in Storrs.

As of Wednesday at noon, 6,785 tickets have been sold for Saturday's regional semifinals with 5,966 sold for Monday's regional final.

Really weird scheduling, though: UConn at 9 PM last Saturday and Monday, and then at noon this Saturday?

It doesn't seem like the schedule was conceived in a way to promote actual attendance at the games themselves, eh?

12:56 PM
