Tuck making the grade at UConn

Morgan Tuck provides a rather simple explanation of what drives her to succeed in the classroom even as she tried to help the Huskies to a fourth consecutive national title.

"You don't want to be the ones on the side (when the UConn players with GPAs of 3.0 or higher are announced) because I have been on that spot before so," Tuck said. "To be able to walk out, it shows that you have been able to take care of everything off the court and I don't have to get any questions about my parents about what I was doing."

Tuck was indeed one of the women's basketball players honored (along with Briana Pulido, Kia Nurse, Gabby Williams, Tierney Lawlor, Courtney Ekmark and Natalie Butler) for having at least a 3.0 GPA in the fall or spring semesters in 2015. All the athletes who made the grade had the chance to be recognized at halftime of the UConn/SMU game including 19 honored with 4.0 GPAs.

UConn women's basketball managers Danielle Hercules, Maeve Maloney, Joy Liu and Kyle McCormick (who attained a 4.0 GPA) were also recognized.

Here's a list of the student-athletes with 4.0 GPAs
Football: Sean Marinan, Andrew Paluch, Justin Wain
Men's Cross Country: Michael McGonnigle, Kyler Osborne, Seth Zuidema
Women's Cross Country/Track: Terra Briody, Lily D'Agostino, Emily Howard, Emese Kanyo, Kelly Myers, Ericka Randazzo
Women's Hockey: Annie Belanger
Women's Lacrosse: Alexandria Crofts, Karaline Smith
Women's Rowing: Arielle Sherman-Golembeski, Kathryn Stevens
Women's Soccer: Emily Armstrong
Women's Tennis: Shea Flanagan

Jim -

Is the AAC tournament set such that UConn knows what time their games are? I noticed ESPN2 or ESPNU will televise the AAC semi-finals and championship. Will the earlier rounds be televised? Or just on ESPN streaming? Thanks.

Nice to hear that SNY plans to televise the entire Senior Day festivities on Saturday.

UConn will play in the 2 p.m. (probably closer to 2:30) quarterfinal on March 5 and the first semifinal on the 6th at 4:30 p.m. The championship game is at 7 p.m. on the 7th.

The first round and quarterfinals will only be available on ESPN3 as far as I know. ESPNU is doing the semifinals and ESPN2 the title game
