NEW ORLEANS - Although she was forced to the bench for long stretches twice with knee injuries during her collegiate career, former Germantown Academy star Caroline Doty will get a chance to finish with a third NCAA women's basketball title on Tuesday night. "I'm glad the national championship is my last career game," said Doty, whose Connecticut team will take on Big East rival Louisville (28-8) at the New Orleans Arena. "I hope to go out with a bang. " Doty, a point guard and deadly three-point shooter, was one of the top prospects in the country when she began her UConn career in 2008.

The basketball was in the air, up for grabs. University of Connecticut sophomore point guard Caroline Doty wanted it, fought for it. That was halftime yesterday at Villanova's Pavilion. A UConn manager was throwing balls out for warm-ups. Doty - a UConn starter from the first game of her freshman year - wanted the first one. She was smiling, but she wanted it. "That's her," said her coach, Geno Auriemma. "She's a throwback to the way things used to be. " The Germantown Academy graduate, who grew up in Collegeville and then Doylestown, runs the show for one of the most dominant teams ever assembled in any sport.

On Sundays, Caroline Doty puts on her Michael Vick jersey and watches the Eagles. Her favorite player is wide receiver DeSean Jackson ("He's such a tiny dude and sky's the limit," she said), but the Vick jersey was a gift from her brother. "There's nothing like being from Philadelphia," said Doty, a graduate of Germantown Academy and redshirt junior for the University of Connecticut women's basketball team. "It gives me an edge. Some people don't see it, some people do. " Doty needs that edge.

STORRS, Conn. - University of Connecticut guard Caroline Doty has suffered another knee injury and will miss the entire season. School officials said Thursday that Doty, the former Germantown Academy star, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee in late July. The junior will undergo surgery in the coming weeks.

"We are all obviously disappointed for Caroline, but we know that she will work very hard to be ready for next season," UConn coach Geno Auriemma said in a written statement.

HARTFORD, Conn. - The Holy Family women's basketball team was a recipient of Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma's generosity and a victim of the Huskies' might in an exhibition game Wednesday night at the XL Center.

Seniors Erin Mann and Ana Cruz each scored 11 points for Holy Family. "We came here to get better, and I think we did that," Cruz said.

Coming off two losses last weekend to Cardinal O'Hara and Archbishop Wood - two highly-rated Catholic League teams - Germantown Academy may have gotten just what it needed yesterday in an easy, 69-31 girls' basketball victory over a young Abington Friends team. In raising their record to 4-2, the Patriots scored off the opening tap against the Kangaroos (1-3) and went on to win with little exertion. That gave them a chance to work on some aspects of their game that had been missing on occasion in their previous games.

NEW YORK - The top team in the Big East Conference women's basketball preseason poll once again has a Philly-born coach, but this time it is not Connecticut's Geno Auriemma. Notre Dame, which is guided by former St. Joseph's star Muffet McGraw, drew the No. 1 ranking from the conference coaches in the poll announced Thursday morning as part of the Big East's annual media day for the women's teams. The Irish made a run to the NCAA title game last season, upsetting then-top-ranked UConn in the semifinals before Texas A&M prevailed for the national championship.

BATON ROUGE, La. - Maggie Lucas backpedaled with her shooting arm extended as her fourth three-pointer of the first half swished through, then she turned to trot back on defense while holding up three fingers on each hand. Penn State's leading scorer was well on her way to a memorable night, which meant trouble for LSU. Lucas scored 30 points, three short of a career high, and the fourth-seeded Lions moved on to the third round of the women's NCAA tournament with a 90-80 victory over No. 5 seed LSU on Tuesday night.

"Yeah, I remember, trust me," Rutan, a 5-foot-9 guard, said Saturday afternoon of her freshman season at Xavier in 2010.
