The Huskies have certainly had their health issues this season. Bria Hartley missed the first two games this season with an injured left ankle. Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis did not play against Colgate Nov. 28 due to a concussion. And Kiah Stokes (stress reaction right shin) and Morgan Tuck (right knee bone bruise) did not play tonight against Colgate.
It appears that Stefanie Dolson avoided injury in the second half tonight when she significantly rolled her left ankle at the defensive end. She fell to the ground and was forced to leave UConn’s 97-25 win with 13:56 remaining.
Dolson did not return. But she was seen laughing on the bench as she slid a brace on her ankle. After the game, she brushed off the incident and said that she could have gone back into the game if needed.
“I’m an uglier faller,’’ said Dolson, who finished with nine points, six rebounds and four blocks. “At least it looked bad. I felt it crack. But maybe it just needed to be a nice little cracked ankle. No, it’s fine. Just a little tweak.’’
