Star freshman Breanna Stewart returned to practice today for the Huskies and was a full participant.
She has missed the last two games due to a sprained left ankle sustained in practice last Friday. However, UConn coach Geno Auriemma said that Stewart could have played Tuesday against Louisville in an emergency situation.
Stewart is expected to return to action Saturday when UConn meets Syracuse at the XL Center. She is currently second on the team in scoring (14.6) and first in rebounding (7.3) and blocks (1.8).
