"Some of the practice players have been saying I nipped them a little with coming off screens. So that’s a plus."

Heheh :D

P.S. That thing looks big

It is similar to the brace I wore for almost 6 mos. Believe me you would not want to clash knees with someone wearing one. Only difference I see is mine has large external knobs where you can set and control the range of motion.

ICE - I had forgotten about your leg injury. How is it feeling these days, and what if any lingering effects are you feeling? How is strength? Range of motion?

Range of motion is great but I have a lag issue that prevents me from using the quads to fully extend my leg, about 5 degrees. Nothing major. Strength is still the big issue. Next week will be the one year anniversary of the the injury. doctors and PT told me from the start that this is a 12-18 mo. recovery. I believe them. Once loosened up I can walk with only the slightest perceptible break in gait.

Going upstairs is pretty much OK unless I am fatigued but going downstairs is still awkward.

It is certainly livable and I am just thankful with the outcome compared to how it might have been. thanks for asking.

How's your 3-point shot? :)

Sounds like the trend is still upward, which is good. Strength is something that comes back very gradually. Glad that you have already come so far, after a pretty serious mishap.

Yes, still moving forward. Every now and then I realize I just did something I had not been able to do before. Kind of surprise myself every now and then.

Caroline has already said she will be back next year. if she can run the team the way she did today allowing Bria to play the 2, that bodes incredibly well. also, i think we will see Stef playing more minutes - clearly they weren't needed today. but i think Caroline, for better or worse, is a big key for UCONN this year.

It falls short just like my vertical leap.
Big whoop. Y'all start at, what, 8 feet tall when standing? You can practically dunk flat-pawed!

That and the fact that no one, that is no one moves us of the block. At least, not and survive.
