HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Breanna Stewart laced up her sneakers that were dedicated to Kobe Bryant and his daughter and took the court for her first game in nine months after rupturing her right Achilles tendon.

She liked the results.

"The first step was getting out there and playing, Obviously there was going to be rust, but I was pretty happy," she said after the U.S. women's national team beat No. 4 UConn 79-64 on Monday night in an exhibition game. "The next step is to see how the leg feels in the morning and then at the next practice."
