While many were saying "CW is back", I thought an even more notable event was CW's response to the question at 1:45 here. This is an awesome answer.
Squeaks and bubbles from the Okey Dokey kid! Her personality is infectiously up beat. I can see this scene of a little Geno office serious chat. About half way through Geno asks "Are you getting what I'm saying Crystal? Cuz if you are you shouldn't be smiling. Okay? CW: "Smiling? I thought I was frowning." Geno goes to the hair rub!!What a great interview. So self aware as a freshman. And she could barely contain her excitement. What a joy.
Yes, she certainly has a fun personality. Unfortunately, after her preseason faux pas, I doubt we'll get anything as provocative as "People are going to feel UConn" again.and in front of a camera. It's fun listening to a player who is perhaps a little less guarded in some of their responses.
Christyn is the Princess of Happy,,,,KML is the all-time Queen.Aside from her talent as a basketball player, Christyn is one of the happiest, most upbeat young ladies I’ve ever seen. Whatever else she does in her life, I hope she always maintains her positive outlook and wonderful personality.
Do you remember DT or Sveta or Sue as Freshmen. They did it all (almost Defense wasn't their big suites). But as players, as scoring as for winning there have been few to match them.] Ooops forgot the best Maya as a frosh played big time in first game of her freshman year and never looked back. If she had a frosh slump--or Sue or DT or Svetlana--they were not memorable.I think the biggest problem freshman have is attempting to do too much too early. You can build a better foundation slowly than you can quickly. When you build too quickly cracks that need to be filled in are often ignored and then later forgotten about. Even if you can put up some bigger numbers they should not be forced and only come within the flow of the offense.
CW seems to have her head squared on her shoulders and that speak well for her being able to get the most out of Geno's coaching and system. I for one was not a fan of some posters premature expectations of her and wanting her to force living up to them.
