No. 1 UConn’s freshman point guard Crystal Dangerfield will miss the next two weeks of basketball action with a foot injury, according to head coach Geno Auriemma.
“Crystal’s not playing for the next two weeks,” Auriemma said in a statement during the press conference following UConn’s win over USF on Tuesday. “She has a thing in her foot that we have to keep an eye on and today was going to be her last game for a while if it didn’t respond exactly how we wanted it to. It’s more of a precautionary thing.”
Dangerfield, who helped the Huskies record the program’s 90th straight win and tie its own NCAA record on Tuesday, is averaging 6.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 23.0 minutes per game this season. She played a big part in UConn’s win over No. 2 Baylor earlier this season, as she notched a career-high 19 points with five assists in the contest.
