The already shorthanded UConn Huskies have suffered another blow.

The team announced on Tuesday that Caroline Ducharme entered concussion protocol and did not travel for the upcoming two game road-trip against Butler and Xavier.

The sophomore guard suffered the injury in Monday afternoon’s practice.

Ducharme has turned a corner over the past few games for the Huskies. After a bit of a slow start to the season, she's averaging 13.7 points over her past six games. 

In the team's win over Marquette on Saturday afternoon, she dropped a career-high 19 points.

Ducharme is now averaging 8.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.5 assists across 12 games this season.
