Video: UConn’s Kia Nurse Bounced Back Nicely Against Creighton

UConn Huskies women’s basketball freshman Kia Nurse didn’t exactly play her best game in the loss to the Stanford Cardinal last Monday.

She played just 20 minutes and had nine points but fouled out of the game at an important stretch in the second half. Was her fouling out the difference?

UConn G Kia Nurse (11) goes in for a layup as Creighton G MC McGrory (21) at Gampel Pavilion on November 23, 2014.Probably not.

The key though would be in how would she bounce back in the next game. It’s obviously a little different at UConn where the expectations, in ways, are totally different. And let’s not forget, she’s just a freshman

Having played for various Canadian National Teams, including the Senior Women’s Team, she’s faced adversity before and came back from that.

Well there were no worries of a letdown again last Sunday when the Huskies played the Creighton Bluejays. Nurse responded from her poor performance against Stanford with 22 points, including going 4-for-4 on three-pointers.

Just as Morgan Tuck playing well is valuable to Breanna Stewart. The same can be said for Nurse, not only offensively, but defensively.

While UConn won’t need 22 points from her on a nightly basis, they’ll need her to be consistent.

Hopefully the Creighton game was the first step to getting her back on track.

Watch and/or listen below UConn Women’s Basketball head coach Geno Auriemma, Stewart and Nurse talk about Nurse bouncing back.

Video: Morgan Tuck’s Presence on Court Should Help Breanna Stewart

When the UConn Huskies women’s basketball team lost to the Stanford Cardinal last week, it was evident that the team was relying on their All-American Breanna Stewart to get things done by herself and lead the team to a win.

UConn F Morgan Tuck (3) attempts a three-pointer against Creighton at Gampel Pavilion on November 23, 2014.That’s been the case in the past as we’ve seen previous UConn women’s teams do this when superstars Diana Taurasi and Maya Moore were on the team.

Last Sunday against the Creighton Bluejays, things came a little easier for Stewart. Sure the Bluejays weren’t the Cardinal or the Notre Dame Fighting Irish or any one of the top women’s teams who could possibly slow down Stewart.

But with Morgan Tuck on the court, making shots from the outside as well as the inside, things opened up on the floor for Stewart which made it easier for her to move around and shoot.

If this can continue going forward, it should be an easier road for the Huskies especially with some more big games coming up in the very near future.

Watch and/or listen below as UConn Women’s Basketball Coach Geno Auriemma along with Stewart and Tuck talk about what Tuck can do for Stewart when the pair is on the floor together.
