Сегодняшняя тренировка напомнила мне предсезонную подготовку в американском университете...вся тренировка только спринты и ускорения.

(We shall await Wonk's translation.)

Today's workout reminded me of the pre-season training at an American university ... the whole workout just sprints and acceleration.

Something like "I don't shoot with my nose," or "Why should I pass the ball, I was open."

She remains among my all-time favorites. I think Geno summed it up beautifully:

``The average person who didn't know anything about our team knew about that Russian kid,'' Auriemma said. ``That's the impact that she had. People talk about her hairstyle. People talk about her looks. They talk about her demeanor on the court. Her whole persona was so unique that old guys wanted her to be their daughter and old women wanted to nurture her and college guys wanted to date her and little girls wanted to grow up to be like her. She touched everybody.''

Was there a big jump in the number of girls named Svetlana in the late 90s?

Svet was about 15 years ahead of her time in WCBB, in my opinion. UConn was very fortunate to have her. It's too bad she ended her college career unable to defend the national championship, but she was part of the team that firmly established UConn as the progam of the 2000s.

No but a lot of kids were Svetty. At least until they hit the showers.
