I uploaded Geno and Diana's chat on Instagram:
My vivid memories are different.What a great conversation! In 59 minutes, we received an incisive history of Women's BB and experienced the special relationship that exists between Coach and D. I have three vivid memories of Diana: (1) when she led the UCONN cheer at the end of the high school All America game at the Civic Center; (2) Her grief at losing to ND in the final four - and Geno's ignoring the game to comfort his star player; and (3) her wondrous arrogance when she willed her team to defeat Tennessee in the 2004 championship game. We will not see another like her.
1 & 3... along with her kicking the ball in the air after winning the Championship gameMy vivid memories are different.
1. The “call me” signal to the Duke student section after beating a favored Duke team at home.
2. “Mother...” right in front of Pat Summit after burying a turnaround 3-pointer with a defender right in her face.
3. Showing “UCONN” on her jersey after winning NC#3.
