This won't be any fun for Heather Buck, the star from Stonington High School. She's been diagnosed with mono and will miss at least three weeks.
Coach Geno Auriemma said Friday that the team's medical and training staff will monitor Buck and determine when she is able to return.
This could be much longer than three weeks. If you recall, last season former Huskies recruit Elena Delle Donne had mono and she missed most a large chunk of her senior season. She missed a couple of months. The Huskies will need Buck back sooner than that or it will be small ball all year for them.
