This article is great. Alot of Fresh quotes including one that is at the top of the class
The 2020 Group of 6 has impressed the Hall of Fame coach with their competitiveness and work ethic, even through the ups and down just about every freshman has.
That’s not different than 32 years ago, but there are differences.
“We didn’t have any 6-foot-5 kids on the team in 1988,” Auriemma said. “We didn’t have the kind of quickness and athleticism in 1988. What we have to do now is find what style works for us. Some years it’s easy and other years it’s not. Right now with this team they have more of a full-court mentality. They want to go. They want to run. The best way to describe it they want to play like they’re used to playing. They go up and down and do dangerous and ill-advised passes and it’s like they all become (Philadelphia Eagles QB) Carson Wentz.
“But they love the game. They love being in the gym and working on their game. We can work with that. I still tell them the things they have to do and remind them that they’re not exactly the finished product and they’ve got work to do. But I do like the way they go about things. I don’t like it all of the time and I’m not saying it’s ideal. But these freshmen are good to be around, all six of them.”
Most interesting thing to me there is Adamec saying Edwards could compete for a starting job, along with Paige of course. I kinda doubt he'd make that comment if he wasn't hearing something along those lines.
