Brittany Hunter aggravated her surgically repaired knee is listed as day-to-day. With her potential absence, the starting lineup will again have a different look.

Who would step in? Charde Houston would seem logical, but then consider the bench options. It would be Ketia Swanier and....(crickets). Maybe moving Houston back in, with say, Tahirah Williams and putting Maya Moore back on the bench is better.

The loss of Kalana Greene hasn't seemed to hurt the Huskies, as they handled San Diego State on Friday. Now the stakes are higher as the Huskies are the new No. 1 team in the country, something that should have happened a lot sooner based on how well, and easily, they have beaten teams.

With the ranking comes the big 'ol target on their backs. and first up is Hartford and coach Jen Rizzotti. The Hawks are a strong team this year and Rizzotti has done well in building her program.

The Huskies have lost junior guard Kalana Greene for at least the remainder of tonight's game against South Carolina. With 2:44 left in the opening half, Greene was hit from behind and fell to the court hard, injuring her right knee.

After being checked on by the team's training staff, Greene was helped off the court.

If it helps to serve as a measure of the injury's significance, coach Geno Auriemma was not on the sideline when play resumed in the second half. It is assumed he is with his starting guard.

This season Greene has started every game and is averaging 7.6 points per contest.

Mel Thomas needs five points tonight for 1,000 in her career. My guess is she'll have that within three minutes of tipoff.

Coach Geno Auriemma has said a few times in recent weeks that he never would have imagined Thomas scoring 1,000 points when he recruited her out of Mount Notre Dame in Cincinnati, OH.
