UConn pretty much is at a level that no other team can come close to. UConn continues to get better and Genos ability to teach and tweak each and every player at UConns level is truly amazing. Its one thing to show a player what to do it another to show each individual player what to do, expect it to be done, and then drill them on it until they cant do it wrong...as a team. The entire UConn team is on the same page and there are no outside interferences. Many teams have great individual talented players who cant play as a team, are not on the same page, and never improve because theyre not taught, and there is no discipline to give them a reason to change.
Genos remarks during the half time tape last nite referring to recruiting players as well as their parents and if their parents were a hindrance he wouldnt recruit the kid, was spot on. You cant have distractions. You cant have parents telling the kid something different then what Geno is telling them. In order to get better you have to change or you'll continue to average. Geno is a coach who can get a player to the next level, but everyone, parents, coaches, and players all have to be on the same page. Once kids get to UConn parents need to stop coaching them. Theyre in Genos hands now.
Take a look at UCOnns roster today and tell me who isn't getting better. Some faster then others but you can see the improvement. That's special and that's why UConn as a team is do dam good.
