BRIDGEPORT — Minutes after the UConn women’s basketball team completed an exhausting double-overtime victory over NC State in the regional final,

Juhász, her injured left arm in a sling, shared tears and smiles with her teammates.

They hugged her, they placed a “Final Four” hat on her head, they made her the center of their post-game party.

Earlier in the night, the players were visibly shaken when Juhász fell to the court after driving to basket. She landed on her left arm, 

“They were pretty shook up about it,” UConn coach Geno Auriemma said. “It was one of those that you've seen it before on TV, and it's not pretty. And they had a chance to see it up close.

I didn't, but they did. So they were pretty shook up about it. You could see it in their faces.”

Auriemma described the injury as a fracture and dislocation. UConn was leading NC State 25-18 when Juhász went down with 6:19 left in the first half.
