The University of Connecticut took home a win Saturday in the quarterfinals of the Big East Tournament after routing Georgetown University 69-39.
UConn will face Marquette Sunday afternoon.
Azzi Fudd made her first appearance on the court after re-injuring her knee in January and missing 14 games. Fudd scored 10 points in 17 minutes.
Dorka Juhász also made her first appearance on the court after missing UConn’s regular season finale with a sprained ankle.
Several UConn players have been injured this season — and injuries continued Saturday. Caroline Ducharme did not return to the game after suffering a head injury during the second quarter. It was uncertain if Ducharme had a concussion and there was no word as to whether she'd play in Sunday's semifinal game.
Aaliyah Edwards ended with the most scores of the game with 19 points; Lou Lopez Sénéchal had 14 points, while Dorka Juhász scored 13 points.
UConn faced Georgetown in last year's Big East Tournament quarterfinal game; the Huskies won that game as well — 84-38 — advancing to the semifinals.
