Hartley’s Status For Season Opener Remains Uncertain

As Sunday’s season opener against the College of Charleston rapidly approaches, it is becoming less likely that All-American Bria Hartley will be on the floor for the Huskies.

Hartley will not play in Wednesday’s exhibition game against Division II Holy Family due to a sprained left ankle. She still has yet to return to practice.

“I would hope sooner rather than later we actually get her to a practice,’’ UConn coach Geno Auriemma said. “And the fact that we play tomorrow and then we play Sunday, which is not too far away … Believe me, no one would be happier than me to have her available for Sunday’s game. But right now I’m not that hopeful. I hope so, but I don’t envision it happening.’’

Freshman Breanna Stewart did not practice Monday or Tuesday due to a sore right foot. She is listed as probable for Wednesday’s game. However, she could be held out as a precaution.

    Think that they Uconn should keep her out until second or third game of the season..that’s Hartley I’m talking about have to make sure she is @ least 90 percent maybe 100 percent against easy foe’s just my opinion.
