Geno has a losing record to just TWO schools. What are they?

He has a .500 record against 4 other schools.

Can't remember the teams, but I seem to remember that at least one of them will always have a winning record against UCONN because the school no longer exists, or has dropped women's hoops from its competitive sports (or is now a Division III school).

Are you imposing some unstated restriction, like minimum number of games, because I think there are eleven such teams without any qualifier. URI, IIRC has the most games and the biggest deficit, but there are many others, like Brooklyn, Monmouth State, DC, Temple, and others.

Are we allowed to look it up in the media guide?

If not, then I can only name three .500 teams - Ball State, Vanderbilt, nad New Hampshire.
And one team against whom Coach Auriemma has a losing record - La Salle.

Well done. I had missed New Hampshire, so there are 5 teams that he is .500 against.

As Phil & VAU noted, the losing records are against
- LaSalle (0-3)
- US International (0-1)

And the 5 schools with a .500 record are ...
- Ball St (1-1)
- Michigan St (1-1)
- New Hampshire (1-1)
- Stanford (6-6)
- Vanderbilt (2-2)

Pretty remarkable. And only Mich St, Stanf, and Vandy have played UConn since 1990.

VERY tough !!!

What is the current status of LaSalle (would Lasalle even be considered a DIII school) and US International (does the school even exist any more ???).

US International does not sponsor athletics anymore. (And it's now called Alliant International University.)

One of the losses to Lasalle was in 1986. I think Maya's current coach, Cheryl Reeve, played for the LaSalle Explorers that year. I believe she was a senior (and leading scorer) on the 1987-1988 ranked LaSalle team.

LaSalle is in the Atlantic 10.

Thanks. I was fooled by the cover ad (for athletic gear) on the LaSalle site, which doesn't show any sports or schedules unless you close the ad first

Actually there are 7 teams with winning records over UCONN Women's Basketball. See:
The Winners page 83 of the Media Guide

Yes, I did. Did you read my post? I explicitly said UCONN, not Geno. Try to pay attention. You too Icebear.
Did you read ANY of the posts in this thread?

Sadly, your changing the parameters only causes confusion unless you note you are specifically doing so since others already made that error.

i would have never guessed without looking at the media guide. IIRC also, Providence has quite a few wins against UCONN as they were the premier program in the BE early on.
