Geno Auriemma quotes

I don't know where we'd be without Saniya Chong right now. That's how much she's changed and added to our program.feedback

My consistency, I really struggled with that. In the past, I would have a really good week, but then drop down like I didn't even exist. That was one of my huge problems.feedback

Obviously we played a really, really good team. They're hard to play against, and today was a struggle for us. Even when we got up 20, I didn't think it was like being up 20 against somebody else where you know it's going to go from 20 to 30. I never had that feeling, and it was a grind for our guys, and we felt it a little bit in the fourth quarter.feedback

You see it all the time. You see it at every AAU tournament, you see it at every high school game. So recruiting kids that are really upbeat, loving life, love the game, and have this tremendous appreciation for when their teammates do something well, that's hard. That's hard. It's really hard.feedback

Recruiting enthusiastic kids is harder than it's ever been because every kid watches TV, and they watch the NBA or they watch Major League Baseball or they watch the NFL, whatever sport they watch, WNBA, it doesn't matter, and what they see is people just being really cool. So they think that's how they're going to act. They haven't even figured out which foot to use as a pivot foot and they're going to act like they're really good players.feedback

That first three or four minutes of the second half I think kind of ended the game for all intents and purposes.feedback

Fear paralyzes you, and desire to win inspires you. We talk about eliminating that fear. The 100-win streak isn't all theirs.feedback

We haven't been in this scenario in a long time where, if two or three things go wrong, we can't recover. But this is the era where I live. This is the era where I'm playing. The sand just sits there and thinks, I'm safe. No you're not. Everything loses at some point.feedback

We just know that when we recruit kids, it's going to happen. We trust them and they believe it because it's expected. We don't know when it's going to happen, but it has a tendency to happen in the biggest moments.feedback

We've been able to do what we did better than anybody else all year long, against the best competition anyone has played against or beat. Obviously that builds a certain confidence.feedback

We might be the No. 1 seed but I don't know that we are the clear-cut favorite.feedback

I worry sometimes about being at home. I worry about the distractions that kids have. When you are on the road you can just huddle everybody up and you can eliminate a lot of distractions. Sometimes the officials get funny against the home team in the NCAA Tournament.feedback

The last thing on my mind is the number. I'm sure with this weekend coming up, it will be a big topic of conversation. Right now, we just needed a game like this where we did a lot of things really, really well.feedback

Little by little, it will come back. It better come back before Monday night or else.feedback

I know that sports is the one great place where race, religion and ethnicity and politics shouldn't enter into it, but unfortunately it always does encroach upon it. Anything that encourages participation. Let's get as many people playing as possible. Make the game as inclusive as possible within reason. You don't want to put people in a position on the floor where it could cause a problem for the player or the opponent. I'm sure if enough intelligent people get together, they can come up with an intelligent solution to this.feedback

This team is pretty good as just keeping everything on an even keel. Even afterward, there's a feeling of accomplishment, they feel like they've done something significant. But there isn't this over-the-top screaming and yelling as if we just won a national championship.feedback

Unfortunately, these games are few and far between in women's basketball. But it was a fabulous environment. The crowd was great.feedback

Everything that happened except us getting up 19, I expected it to happen. Maybe we won this game because, in some way, it's Connecticut and we're used to making some of the plays we made tonight. When we needed a shot, we got one. When we needed a stop, we got one. When we needed a play, we got one. It came from different spots, and we needed every one of them.feedback

We're going to have to match that. They're deep, have a lot of players. We're not so (deep) right now.feedback

That's still one of my favorite things to do.feedback

I don't think we should be No. 1. I don't think we should be anywhere near the teams that almost went to the Final Four and have everybody back and have all that experience and all that talent. We've been in those situations before and we're not there now. So, wherever they put us, I'm OK.feedback

She obviously wants to play, I want her to play. We are a much better team when she is on the floor.feedback

Everyone we bring in off the bench can score and make a play. It's fun to watch. For as little time as we had together, we do a lot of really nice things out there which is nice to see.feedback
