Azzi Fudd missed UConn women’s basketball’s win over Maryland after suffering a non-contact knee injury during practice on Tuesday, but her status going forward remains uncertain.

The injury happened when Fudd pulled up after a shot and, according to head coach Geno Auriemma, she said: “‘That felt funny.’”

“[She then] walked to the training room,” he continued. “I’m like, ‘Did she stub her toe? Turf toe? What?’ ... I guess we’ll find out but it’s like most all the other ones that have happened: Nobody near ‘em. Just random stuff.”

The Huskies still don’t know the full extent of the injury because they have to wait for swelling in Fudd’s knee to go down before they can complete the necessary diagnostic tests.
