The UConn football team will learn their destination most likely next weekend. But in the meantime, there’s just as an important piece as getting to a bowl game, extra practices.
With a young team, just 14 seniors, extra practices are beneficial from a developmental stand point. And as UConn football head coach Bob Diaco pointed out in his press conference on Tuesday, it shortens the offseason.
After Monday night’s 40 point win over Kansas State, UConn women’s basketball head coach Geno Auriemma had a tough time finding a player comparable to Gabby Williams that he has coached in Storrs.
He ultimately thought that Tamika Williams (no relation) was the last player to have the athleticism of Gabby Williams. Tamika Williams came to UConn in 1998 as part of the Fab Five recruiting class. So we are talking about 17 years here.
Watch and/or listen below as Auriemma talks about Gabby Williams athleticism:
While UConn Huskies men’s basketball coach Kevin Ollie would like to see his team “step on the neck” of the opposing teams to put them away, there’s something else he would rather see in the box score.
And that would be beating the faceless opponents (rebounds, assists, turnovers, etc).
Watch and/or listen below as Ollie and Rodney Purvis talk about defeating the faceless opponents and stepping on the opponents’ necks.
UConn women’s basketball player Breanna Stewart was very happy that her fellow senior Moriah Jefferson was the one who passed her the ball and got the assist on her 2000th career point on last night’s 97-57 win over the Kansas State Wildcats.
If the UConn Huskies women’s soccer team wants to advance to the quarterfinals of the 2015 NCAA Women’s Soccer Tournament, they are going to need a defensive effort like they got on Friday night vs the Notre Fighting Irish.
The UConn women’s soccer defense held strong all night and took advantage of their opportunities. Goalkeeper Emily Armstrong and the back four in front of her didn’t let anything past them.
Standing in their way of a quarterfinal game is the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, who beat the Huskies 2-0 earlier in the season.
Watch and/or listen below as UConn head coach Len Tsantiris, Rachel Hill and Armstrong talk about what they need to do to beat the Scarlet Knights.
