National player of the year Stewart out for UConn tonight

UConn will be playing without two-time national player of the year Breanna Stewart in tonight's game against LSU.

Stewart sprained her ankle in practice last week and is not in uniform tonight. It will be the first game she has missed since the first round of the 2013 NCAA tournament, a stretch of 92 straight games.

Natalie Butler, who had a chance to make her UConn debut, is also in street clothes so she won't be playing either. Saniya Chong, who was thought to the least likely of the Huskies to play tonight, is in uniform.

Obviously the subject of Stewart's availability moving forward and especially for Monday's game against No. 6 Maryland in the Maggie Dixon Classic will be addressed with UConn coach Geno Auriemma after the game.

Freshman Katie Lou Samuelson will start in Stewart's place
