    I want Saniya to have the game of her life--maybe tonight, maybe not--just before this season ends.

    I want her to be the one who's interviewed after the game; has she ever been the one? I want her gifts--steadiness amid chaos, sweet moves to the basket, sure-handed passes--to be celebrated and her deficits--lack of confidence, mindless turnovers, inconsistency--for once forgotten.

    Before the season ends, I want Saniya to be the sole winner of the Badass award.

    You had me at hello with this post. And while not all of this may come to pass tonight, I have no doubt that it will over the course of the season.

    I like MOST of what you write here---there was absolutely no need to list WHAT YOU THINK are her deficits.
    I find the "mindless turnover" comment offensive. Her to/assist ratio is among the best. I doubt you meant this posting to be anything other than positive towards UConn's starting point guard--steady eddie of this team. i like all the positive things you said about MS Saniya I too hope she wins the BA award before the final game--tonight is a good place as any!!

    Saniya is so loyal and supportive to Geno, special in this year's short of players.
    I hope she is also the player to have 4 NC rings in her resume.

    I believe Saniya was interviewed and shouted out by Geno after the Tulsa game in this clip.

    So didn't we have a thread a month ago about whether Saniya would score 20 in a game this year? (Hint: the answer is YES!)

    You are one of my favorite posters on this board to follow, but It is, what it is... I personally didn't see anything wrong with his statement, we ought to be willing to hear both the good and the not so good about ourselves as It is all part of our growth.. It's very clear to me that the OP has the player best interest at heart and only wants her to do better and share in the spotlight.. Let the truth be told as it is one of Geno's endearing qualities that his players seem to love about him...

    Go Saniya!! This game is a clear indication as to how much better you make this team when you are confident and engaged at both ends, I really enjoyed hearing your post game interview.. here is to many more opportunities...

    You are right--we should be able to post both sides---and I didn't object to most of his posting, infact I agreed with much--but "mindless turnovers' to me was over the top. Do you actually think Saniya with the best To/Assist ratio makes mindless turnovers?? And further posting on this only drags this further than intended.

    If Saniya makes the effort to repeat last night performance---can you imagine how difficult that will make it to defend Kia or KLS?? She won't need 20 but 15 would really be nice for an average.
