Bria Hartley, who reinjured left ankle during the first half of Saturday's win over Marquette and did not return, is expected to play tonight when third-ranked UConn plays host to Louisville in a Big East game at the XL Center in Hartford (9 p.m., CBS-SN).
The Huskies (14-1, 2-1) will probably be without forward Breanna Stewart, however. The 6-foot-4 freshman missed the Marquette game after spraining an ankle in practice Friday and is listed as doubtful against the Cardinals (14-3, 2-1). Sophomore forward Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis leads UConn is scoring (16.0 ppg.) and will be joined in the starting lineup by Hartley (8.8), guard Caroline Doty (4.2), guard Kelly Faris (10.4) and center Stefanie Dolson (12.9).
Louisville, which has lost 11 straight games against the Huskies, is led by 5-9 guard Shoni Schimmel, who averages a team best 12.7 points per game.
