UConn star out with mononucleosis

STORRS, Conn. (AP) — UConn has announced that All-American Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis will miss the next three to six weeks with mononucleosis, leaving the Huskies with just eight healthy players.

The junior forward was averaging 12 points and almost five rebounds a game. She already missed eight games earlier this season after suffering a nerve contusion on her right elbow.

The Huskies started the season with an 11-player roster. That has dwindled due to injury. Forward Morgan Tuck is out for the season after undergoing knee surgery last month.

Guard Brianna Banks has missed three of the last five games with an injured ankle. The Huskies visit South Florida on Sunday.

If Banks can't play, the Huskies would have just six scholarship players in uniform.
