STORRS, CT (WFSB) - The University of Connecticut women's basketball team will have to compete in the conference championship tournament without one of its stars.
The school confirmed on Friday that Katie Lou Samuelson will miss the 2019 American Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Championship due to an injury she suffered during last Saturday's game against Houston.
Samuelson is a senior and averaged 18.9 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.
The Huskies are the top seed in the tournament and will face either ECU or SMU in the quarterfinals on Saturday at 2 p.m.
There's no word on whether Samuelson will be ready for the NCAA Tournament later this month.
