Spot any potential recruits? I wonder if Worcester Academy's junior center Aliyah Boston might have dropped by? WA did not have a game scheduled for last night. She has been to several games the past couple of years...6'3"...was selected MVP of the 17U USA team last June at the qualifier for the World Championships in the summer of 2018.

BTW: Worcester is currently 17-1.

Our losses after next year will be considerable....to say the least.
Lou...Napheesa....and [hopefully] Azura.

I think it is Meg and Kerry...But I wasn't excited either because they definitely used up their eligibility too...:p

You reminded of something- did Kerry do any coaching anywhere? She seems around the program a lot these last couple of years and am curious what she’s been up to.

As I think about it, I agree with Meg that Kerry should have been #10 on the All time list, I think without her, Lobo and the rest might not have followed as soon as they did.

What will be will be. Keep in mind that Saniya's is also from Ossining and she stuck with Geno. She posted on Instagram yesterday that she misses her girls from Connecticut.
Of course. Just don't like people telling me that my eyes are lying to me. That's why I posted the picture.

come to think of it.....what head coach isn't something of an egomaniac...it's something of a prerequisite for the job
I'm not sure egomaniac is the right term to use especially thinking of John Wooden. He like Geno were/are decisive in his well thought out decisions, demanding, and relentless in developing winning BB. Egomaniac to me---is all about ME.

I think you still have time to delete it if you want.
Taken care of for him. If a "joke" it was unfunny.

Because of quotes of the remark, it required pruning of the thread, not appreciated by anyone.

Am issuing this public warning rather than [another] site warning point that could have automatic site functionality consequences. Let this be the last player-trashing "joke" from this source.

Actually I'm going to repeat the (para)phrase used by Colin Cowherd. All great coaches are a bit of a jerk. Popovich, Belichick, Saban, Tomlin, Red Auerbach, Wooden, Stengel, Geno. On and on. That is the prerequisite.

I was thinking of egomaniac in terms of complete self confidence or total belief in your own abilities but your definition is the correct one...says ME!!!!

Please mark that on your calendar, I know I shall--a first. I can't even pass a DavidinNaples test!
Kidding aside, a better than good coach has to believe their complete process is right. I know from Geno's comments that he knows other coaches have good, better, best defense and offense systems and he'll adapt them. However he KNOWs his approach is right.
I would put money on as a young coach he wasn't quite so sure.
