Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Sunday, February 07, 2010

That collective exhale late Thursday evening (or early Friday AM) after the USC-Cal game was probably from Jacki Gemelos' family and friends - two of whom now play in Connecticut.
Tina Charles and Jacki Gemelos were considered by most to be the top recruits in the high school Class of 2006. They remain close friends to this day.

Charles has played in 135 games at UConn and has 2,021 points and 1,191 rebounds in her college career.

Gemelos, a one-time UConn commit who later signed with the University of Southern California, has not played a single minute of college basketball. Her last game was Feb. 22, 2006, for St. Mary’s High of Stockton, Calif. She tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee that night and has had four ACL surgeries — two on each knee — since.
