>>Cavanaugh said being at UConn give him the advantage of being able to pick the brains of national champion coaches in other sports. He said he took a weave-drill he saw Geno Auriemma using at a women basketball practice last year and modified it for his hockey team. "A lot of the concepts in basketball are similar," he said. "You get a rebound and you want to outlet it. Same thing in hockey with transition. All those other coaches have been fantastic with me."<<

>>Cavanaugh said the state also is a recruiting hot bed, with some of the top hockey prep schools in the nation.
"A lot of players from Connecticut helped us win national championships at BC," he said. "So I know there is a wealth of talent for us to go after, and kids in this state grow up wanting to be part of the UConn brand."<<
