Yukon huskies lose another guard; Nika Mohl could leave for several weeks due to a foot injury
A sophomore shooting guard in women’s basketball from UConn, Nika MohlCoach Gino Orima said Wednesday in a media call, that he was discharged due to a foot injury. It’s another blow to a team that already has goalkeepers Big Bakers And Azzi Fd marginalized from injuries. Muhl’s problem is due to a foot injury he suffered last season.
Auriemma said she didn’t know how long Muhl — who played 5-1 in every game this season for the Huskies, would miss, averaging 10.5 minutes. The No. 3 Husky face Georgia Tech on Thursday (ESPN3, 7 p.m. ET) and UCLA on Saturday (ESPN3, 1 p.m. ET).
“You’re careful it doesn’t turn out to be the worst case…a broken foot,” Orima said. “How quickly people heal depends on the individual. This will be the deciding factor.
“But I think it could take three weeks. Maybe more, maybe less. Who knows if we’re lucky.”
The Husky have not had much luck so far this season when it comes to injuries. UConn announced Tuesday that Bueckers, the team leader in scoring, assisting and stealing, will be out for six to eight weeks with a fracture of the tibial plateau in her left knee. She was injured in the last minute of Sunday’s 73-54 win over Notre Dame. Mohl played 14 minutes in that match with six points and two rebounds.
Regarding the Bakers injury so late in the game as the Yukon was leading, Orima said injuries can happen at any time and he can’t train in constant fear of hurting someone.
“You can’t train like that,” Orima said. “You just can’t.” “I had a lot of injuries in the beginning of the matches, in the middle of a training where there is no one near you. So I cannot drown in there.
“I can go back and forth and take it all back. Obviously, [la lesión de Bueckers] It happened in that play, but I think something must have happened [antes de eso]. You read all the stories about how this is usually a traumatic injury caused by some kind of collision or something. “
UConn now only has three healthy guards: Year 4 players Kristen Williams And Evina Westbrook and the ascendant Caroline Ducharme. Goalkeeper Saylor Bufenbarger left the program in November and moved to Arkansas.
FD, the nation’s number one recruit, was discharged with a foot injury. In addition to the third year rule, Aubrey Griffin, neglected with injuries to the ankle and back.
“Aubrey try playing [el martes]She wasn’t really successful, Auriemma said, and she’s not training today. “So I’m not entirely sure of her condition either Thursday or Saturday. We’ll see how that develops day by day.
“We’ve been through a lot of unfortunate things, but that’s part of the sport. No coach has come out unscathed from these things. The past two days have been very, very difficult for the whole programme.
“You have to weather the storm. It’s only going to be a long storm. They say hard times make strong people. I feel like we’ll come out on the other side a lot better than we come in.”
