    Watch Dynamic Dorka

    Would you expect him to? He may not say anything about loyalty but he values (as all coaches do) the experience that players with three years in the program possess. He is fabulous with the press, a reporter's dream but he is not going to pidgeon-hole himself publicly. He is going to give ONO...

    Watch Dynamic Dorka

    I am from Ohio. I have seen her play a bunch both live and on TV. She is a marginal foul shooter, takes plays off defensively, loves shooting 3s (who doesn't), will probably struggle with the structure demanded at UConn that was not even close to being part of McGuff's regime and has not...

    Watch Dynamic Dorka

    My post sounds critical of ONO. It was not. Just because I think Dorka is better does not mean that ONO won't have an important role next year and that she brings things to the table that Dorka does not possess. Will she accept 15-20 minutes a game? Will Geno give her that many or more...

    Watch Dynamic Dorka

    If she gets her foul shot fixed, she can do more things than ONO. What she can off the dribble is really significant. She will create havoc at the high post. Geno is, in my opinion, historically loyal to two, three year starters. I don't know what he is going to do but if it was strictly...

    April 2021 Recruiting Thread

    I have seen Juhasz play a lot at OSU and there is no doubt she could provide meaningful minutes. She can consistently knock down that fifteen footer that ONO hesitated to take. I remain in the really small minority though that think if she stays patient, Piath can help, maybe even next year.

    EVINA IS COMING BACK! [Merged Thread]

    I think part (maybe small) of her decision may be the apparently unusually strong bond that seems to exist with her and Geno.

    Evina and Geno Word Association Game. (Merged thread)

    I have watched everything I can get my hands on for ten years in regards to Geno. What Geno and Evina have is unlike anything I have ever seen.

    The real " Controversy" last night

    Baylor went into last nights' game with a 20 game winning streak without being seriously challenged. I would think the NCAA would have a least a few brain cells to realize that having UConn on TV is a guaranteed bump in ratings. What are the odds of them playing the late game Friday? My...

    Baylor Postgame Thread

    Aubrey played the other 25 minutes. AG took some heat in the chat. Not sure why. She took two charges, hit a perimeter shot and held her own guarding arguably one of the best front court players in the country NaLyssa Smith. If Geno wasn't pleased, we probably would have seen Anna...

    If You Want to be a UConn Legend...

    As pictures in the post game showed, Carrington had success because she spent a lot of time grabbing and holding Paige (most of which were not called). Richards', I think, reputation as a top defender is well-deserved. If only she had any kind of consistent perimeter offensive game.

    Baylor Postgame Thread

    I know it has always been his strategy to use a small rotation but I wished he would have given Evinana rest or two. I think she ran out of gas in the second half. Maybe about 3 minutes of Anna?

    Baylor Postgame Thread

    If UConn lost, we spend the next six months lamenting missed layups and foul shots. Now we get to celebrate a great comeback against an unbelievably physical team.

    Iowa Postgame Thread [merged thread]

    Geno actually sat Paige for a couple of minutes and the world did not end. They continued to play well. Iowa played as well as can be imagined and still lost by 20. I know Clark had 20+ but at least two of her threes were off-balance from at least 5 feet behind the line with CW all over her...

    Syracuse Postgame Thread

    That is what is weird and has been discussed in this thread. It was clock operator error. If it didn't reset, it should have. There was change of possession.

    Marisa Moseley heading to Wisconsin

    Losing does effect the resume. Correct me if I am wrong but the previous coaches that lost have not gotten better jobs. I am happy for her because she is terrific but the hill is steep in front of her.

    Marisa Moseley heading to Wisconsin

    She deserves it but it is a risky move. The program does not have a good history, in fact one of the worst in a loaded Big Ten. The league sent four teams to the Sweet Sixteen this year. No doubt she can coach but can she recruit in the midwest.

    Syracuse Postgame Thread

    There is a uncalled for bravado among some posters (I noted a sample) that to my mind is completely misplaced regarding the likelihood of our shutting down Iowa. Not doubting Clark's talent or scoring ability. I think they learned their lesson with Chelsea Dungee. They will make others...

    Syracuse Postgame Thread

    If she has fewer than 25 points and 10 assists, UConn will win the game by double digits. Clark will have fewer than 25 and 10. The team has a history of shutting down the other team's top scorer.

    Should Aaliyah Edwards continue to start?

    As long as she is a Husky. The kid is a future All-American.

    I don’t think CW had to shoot that long 3 that she banked in. I think the shot clock reset to 20.

    The zone and Cordoso gave them problems early. Congrats to CD and Jamelle for making the right adjustments without calling a timeout.

    I suppose comments can be interpreted in a multitude of ways. I recall that Breanna Stewart recently recognized CD for impact on developing players into well-rounded women off the court.

    Geno tests positive for COVID-19

    If it is any consolation, in the recent games that CD has coached, there is little noticeable difference in the team's play. Still bad timing. Hope for a speedy recovery.

    Nika's shooting concerns appeared to be warranted. She got her chance to start because of injuries. Her shot has improved but I wouldn't call her a threat.

    Pressure to perform

    Paige and CW have averaged 36 and 34 minutes per game in 21 games. Those are high during a normal season. In this weird year, when the games have seemingly been on top of each other, the fatigue factor for these two is starting to show. What I don't get, and will never get, is why these two...

    Don't disagree but Brink is really good. Not as strong as Aaliyah but really skilled nevertheless.

    Piath's spin move to a lefthand layup--She will get meaningful minutes next year. Few on the board agree with me but there is too much talent and size there to keep on the bench.

    How can someone set two team records in one game and have to share the Bad Ass? Aaliyah was terrific but she will have lots of double doubles.

    ESPN's latest WNBA Mock Draft has Evina going #12

    Why would a team draft a guard in the first round that is less than 100% physically and may never be? Evina has proven to be a fabulous leader and teammate. If the stories are true about her knees, I would pass if I was GM.

    A three quarter court chest pass a dozen times a season? I don’t remember any of that length that accurate.
