Geno Auriemma quotes
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.
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.
Little by little, it will come back. It better come back before Monday night or else.
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.
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.
Unfortunately, these games are few and far between in women's basketball. But it was a fabulous environment. The crowd was great.
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.
We're going to have to match that. They're deep, have a lot of players. We're not so (deep) right now.
That's still one of my favorite things to do.
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.

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