Despite a scary close call on the court -- UConn's  will play in Tuesday's Big East Championship game.

School officials say Doty participated in a shootaround Tuesday morning and was cleared by doctors to play against No. 9 West Virginia.

Doty, a sophomore guard with the Huskies, took a blow to the head when she was inadvertently elbowed in the head by a Notre Dame player with just :50 seconds left in Monday night's game.  Doty lay on the floor for a few minutes before being helped up.

The injury ended the history making win on a somber note.  The Huskies' broke the NCAA record with their 71st straight victory.
