UConn women’s basketball’s 2022-23 frontcourt just got a major boost. On ThursdayThursday, Dorka Juhász announced that she will return for her final year of eligibility next season.
Juhász participated in senior day festivities but at the time, said she hadn’t made a decision about returning for next season.
“Coming here, I already wanted to [take part in senior day]. It’s not really about my decision,” Juhász said on Feb. 25. “I haven’t made my decision.”
After spending the first three seasons of her career at Ohio State, Juhász joined UConn this summer. In July, she told The UConn Blog that she planned on using her two remaining years in Storrs.
“When I transferred, I’m definitely looking forward to having that two years,” she said in July. “It’s gonna be one by one. We’ll see how obviously this year goes but I’m definitely not looking forward to just using one year, I’m definitely looking forward to use two.”
Juhász averaged 7.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 19.8 minutes per game before suffering a fractured and dislocated wrist in UConn’s Elite Eight win over NC State. On Wednesday, she underwent successful surgery to repair the injury at UConn Health Center. The recovery is estimated to be four months.
