Bad Sad News (part II):

UConn senior Cassie Kerns has also been diagnosed with Mono and will miss 4-6 weeks of playing time. They just got freshman Heather Buck back in practice after suffering from Mono and now Geno is exploring the possibility of redshirting. They will decide once they get back from South Carolina just before the new year. Kerns was diagnosed last week during finals and will hopefully be back at full strength as soon as possible. UConn now gets even MORE thin in the post. Not a fun way to spend your time in Cancun, Mexico.

Get Well Soon, Cassie!

Missing 4-6 weeks as a senior hoopster for any reason is terrible, but mono just seems worse for some reason. She's the second player (including Buck) as you said; they'd better hope this isn't some sort of strange epidemic. These girls shouldn't have to deal with this stuff now but I hope Kerns has a speedy recovery.

I like your passion for NCAA women's hoops. It's hard finding blogs dedicated to a single program and that's why I'm glad I stumbled on yours.

We're looking for people to blog about college basketball (especially the girls teams) at, the largest sports site on the net. We have a robust, active fanbase who would respond positively to a UConn blog. I think you could gain a sizable audience there and I'd certainly love to read your stuff on the site.

Take a look around College Fanz and let me know what you think at

I hope to hear from you soon!
