    Name yours. I believe he once said "if we play our A game and you play yours, you don't stand a chance"
    I could have it wrong but I always loved that!

    So many, but for me it's the iconic, "We have Diana and you don't."

    I can't pick one, but I have one:
    "You know, Lili, we're recruiting Diana. We're not recruiting
    you."

    Defense wins games and the ofense determines by how much.

    Good one. Reminds me of his dig at Guns during a recent post-game presser when someone mentioned she had a career high in steals: "Yeah, she had one."

    My favorite will likely always be "We have Diana and you don't."

    But (hijack alert) how about including some quotes from others about Geno/UConn? For example, from last night,
    Jose Fernandez: "They Took Our Lunch Money."

    Totally sound like a Geno-ism, as I pointed out in the other thread.

    From a post-game presser during the 2016 NCAA tournament (I forget which game):

    "When Gabby Williams comes into the game and she guards you, you're guarded."​

    She may be short, but she's also slow.

    I'm a hardass, but we wouldn't have had all the accomplishments we have as a basketball program if that's all I was. Players would have stopped listening to me, and I would have been run out of coaching if that's all I was. So I think we win because I am, because I demand sometimes more than they can give. But I don't know what that is until I find out you can't give it.

    While watching the replay of the USF game. I thought of the above quote. during a UConn possession, they threw a entry pass to Napheesa on the block. She turned around and sot a lay up. A thought came to mind. When Napheesa gets the ball on the black, you're beat. :cool:

    Geno was headed to the locker room when one of a group of young female fans yelled, "I love you Geno." Without breaking his stride, Geno replied, "That's because you don't know me."

    Yes, it was when KLS went up to Geno and said she had four fouls.

    You guys are great! Only 1 I could come up with offhand was the Diana quote, though I've heard most all of them. That would be me, every UCWBB fan and about half the young girls in the United States.
