UConn center to have surgery to repair torn ACL

STORRS, Conn. (AP) -- Connecticut center Jessica Moore will have surgery next week to repair a torn knee ligament.

Moore tore her right anterior cruciate ligament while going for a rebound with 6:33 left in the NCAA title game in New Orleans last week.

Team doctors said Moore is expected to return in time for next season.

The 6-foot-3 Moore was a key part of UConn's run to a third straight championship and was selected to the Final Four all-tournament team.
