On Saturday, the Bria Hartley was named to the 10-member WBCA All-America squad, the requirement for induction into the "Huskies of Honor" program. Early in the second half of Sunday’s NCAA Final Four semifinal game against Notre Dame at the Pepsi Center, she became the third sophomore in UConn history to reach the 1,000-point plateau.
