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. The school had no information about how or exactly when the injury occured, except to say it was basketball related. "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. The Tigers from Northeast Philadelphia, ranked 12th in the Division II coaches' preseason poll, held their own early before UConn asserted itself and rolled to a 119-50 victory. 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.

Caroline Doty, a Germantown Academy graduate and now a star basketball player at Connecticut, has treated fans with a trick shot video over the last few years. Last week, she was on the wrong side of trick-or-treating. Dressed as Lady GaGa for Halloween, Doty apparently drew complaints from other residents in her dorm, and they contacted campus police. Police said Doty was banging on doors as she made her way around the halls, and she was issued a citation at 2:15 a.m. The UConn athletic department said the matter was being handled internally.

Debbie Black, the former St. Joseph's playmaker and WNBA all-star who is currently an assistant to Jim Foster, her former Hawks coach, at Ohio State, will be among the inductees Nov. 8 into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame at a ceremony at the Sheraton Society Hill. The former Archbishop Wood High School star was named early last summer just days after it was announced that Foster will be part of the next Women's Basketball Hall of Fame class in Knoxville, Tenn., next June. Incidentally, Ohio State will play Muffet McGraw's Notre Dame squad on the deck of an aircraft carrier Nov. 9 in Charleston, S.C., to launch the season as part of a men's-women's doubleheader.

So here's one way of looking at it: The road to the Elite Eight in women's college basketball this season goes through Germantown Academy. Two former Germantown Academy standouts - Maggie Lucas of Penn State and Caroline Doty of Connecticut - will play against one another in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA women's tournament Sunday at 4:34 p.m. in Kingston, R.I. Their high school coach, Sherri Retif, will be at the game. But she will be wearing blue - one of the colors of both teams - and she bought her ticket through Ticketmaster, not through either team.

KINGSTON, R.I. - In the Kingston Regional semifinals of the women's NCAA tournament, a Philadelphia story of sorts is attached to Sunday's opening matchup between fourth-seeded Penn State (26-6) and top-seeded Connecticut (31-4) at 4:30 p.m. on ESPN2. Two former Germantown Academy teammates will be going against each other in UConn redshirt junior point guard Caroline Doty and Lions scoring sensation Maggie Lucas. Recalling their time playing for the powerhouse in the Philadelphia suburbs, Doty said during Saturday's interview sessions at Rhode Island's Ryan Center that she and Lucas were the pranksters on the team.
