"Freshmen are freshmen," Auriemma said. "Brianna Banks did what I thought she would do. She struggled with things I thought she'd struggle with. She is going to be a factor. Kaleena obviously comes here with the reputation that she is going to score and make shots and she did that and she did a couple of other things to make you think she is not going to come out here and just shoot the ball. Kiah Stokes had her moments. She looked great. She had nine rebounds one night and after the second game I told her 'you are averaging 4.5 rebounds a game. You had nine the first night, none the second night (Stokes actually had four rebounds in the second game).' That is kind of what happens."
