Fortunately for the UConn Huskies women's basketball team, Bria Hartley was able to return from a sprained ankle suffered on Saturday. And she showed no ill effects from the injury.
Hartley had 16 points and seven rebounds to help the No. 3/2 Huskies to a 72-58 win over the 15/13 Louisville Cardinals in front of 8,702 at the XL Center in Hartford, CT. Ironically enough, that was just about the same score the Louisville men beat the UConn men last night (73-58).
UConn improves to 15-1 (3-1 Big East) while Louisville falls to 14-4 (2-2).
Stefanie Dolson tied Hartley for the team-high with with 16 points while adding a team-high nine rebounds and had three assists. Kelly Faris added 13 points and seven assists but had seven turnovers.

The later part of the notation seems ironic with...

Louisville had a busy day, climbing to No. 1 in the Associated Press rankings, flying to Hartford, and then needing a second-half rally to beat Connecticut. To no one's surprise, Peyton Siva was in the middle of it all.
University of Louisville football coach Charlie Strong is on the road recruiting and will stop by Flowery Branch, Ga., High School tomorrow. He’ll visit Chandler Bridges, who has already committed, and will try to flip a three-star safety. Cardinal Authority has the latest on recruiting efforts by Strong.

Russ Smith was brilliant and kept the Cardinals in the game early. His 23 points all seemed to be at his own will. His reckless abandon to the basket payed off and he shined on...
