UConn officials announced today that Sr. All-American C Tina Charles will become the 2nd active and 12th overall Husky to be inducted into the Huskies of Honor on Saturday, Feb. 13th when UConn hosts St. John's at Gampel Pavilion.
“Tina’s a great kid who’s the kind of kid you want on your team,’’ UConn Head Coach Geno Auriemma said. “She is a great teammate, a super human being who I always thought needed a little bit of a kick in the butt every single day at practice to reach her potential. And hopefully she understands and just by (her Huskies of Honor induction) indicates that whether it was the right thing to do or the wrong thing to do she’s going to get exactly what she came to Connecticut for. And she’s going to go down in history as maybe the leading scorer and the leading rebounder maybe in (team history). So if you ask me would I do it any different I would say, `No.’’’
Congratulations Tina!!! You worked very long and hard and you deserve it, girl!!!
