STORRS, Conn. - Sophomore forward Morgan Tuck underwent a successful surgical procedure on her right knee on Thursday, January 30 at the University of Connecticut Health Center.

The procedure was performed by Dr. Robert Arciero. Tuck is expected to be ready for the start of the 2014-15 season and will apply for a medical redshirt following the 2013-14 season.

Tuck, a native of Bolingbrook, Ill., last appeared for the Huskies on January 7, 2014 against Houston.  She scored 19 points in only 13-minutes of action against the Cougars.

"I am very pleased that the procedure on Morgan’s knee was a success," head coach Geno Auriemma said. "Morgan knows how hard she is going to have to work during the rehabilitation process and I am confident this knee injury will be behind her at the beginning of next season.”
