The UConn women's basketball team will be without senior guard Katie Lou Samuelson for the American Athletic Conference Tournament.
Samuelson suffered an injury last Saturday in the Huskies' game against Houston. She hurt her back diving for a ball in the second quarter.
The tournament begins Friday at Mohegan Sun Arena.
UConn is the No. 1 seed and will play on Saturday at 2 p.m. against the winner of the ECU vs. SMU game.
