Geno Auriemma on Baylor:“They are likely a more well-rounded team than the one we played last year [a 65-64 win in Hartford]

More Geno: “Whether Baylor succeed or fails isn’t going to depend solely on what Brittney Griner does.”

Geno on his team's highs and lows: “This group does not experience many highs and lows."

More Geno: “The days we took off over the weekend has helped them a lot. They’ve worked hard. "

More Geno: “There is a good energy level. They are very positive about the things we are trying to do."

Geno: "I know its blasphemous to say, but we’re a young team and they don’t always know how to handle new situations. "

Geno: “The exams aren’t as much as a factor as going down to play in that [Baylor] environment. It will be different.”

Geno: "Baylor has a pretty good thing going on down there. No one has a player remotely close to Brittney Griner."

Geno: "And if that doesn't work [Griner], they have a coached that's pretty good at stoking things up [Kim Mulkey]."

Geno: "She [Mulkey] is pretty good at creating an "Us Against the World" enviromnent, like everyone is picking on Brittney."

Geno on Brittney Griner: "Her personality is how she looks. She is pretty much low key. She wants to do the right thing."

Geno: "Brittney [Griner] is going to grow by leaps and bounds because everything is still new to her."

Geno: "Defensively, there isn't anyone who can guard Brittney [Griner] one-on-one. There wasn't anyone in Europe, either."

If #UConnwomen center Stefanie Dolson gets into foul trouble Sunday, Geno Auriemma insists they be good fouls. "Need a calling card."

Geno: "The fouls big guys commit should make them say, 'Yeah, that was me, what about it?"

Geno would trade a dozen UConn-Pacific games for one UConn-Baylor (or Stanford) matchups. He lives for those games.
