Video: Time to Move On From 2015 UConn Women’s Basketball National Championship

The UConn women’s basketball team will open up the 2015-16 season this Monday night in Columbus, OH against The Ohio State Buckeyes.

They’ll have their home opener on November 28, 2015 at the XL Center against the Kansas St. Wildcats. They won’t make their Gampel Pavilion debut until December 5 when they’ll host the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in a rematch of last year’s National Championship Game.

While it might be like pouring salt into the wounds of the Fighting Irish to celebrate last season’s national championship then, head coach Geno Auriemma didn’t want his charges to be distracted and opted to hold the ring ceremony and banner raising before last Sunday’s exhibition game vs Vanguard.

This allows the Huskies to officially close the book on the 2015 National Championship and concentrate on the task at hand, their fourth straight national championship.

Watch and/or listen below as Auriemma and Moriah Jefferson talk about getting the rings and raising the banner last weekend.

UConn Hockey’s Evan Richardson Playing Best Hockey of His Career

Despite the fact that the UConn Huskies men’s hockey team is struggling right now after four straight losses, Evan Richardson has been playing his best hockey in his career according to head coach Mike Cavanaugh.

Hopefully, the Huskies can get things back on the winning track tonight when they take on the Army Black Knights at the XL Center. You can catch the game on WTIC 1080-AM.

Video: UConn Women’s Basketball Coach Geno Auriemma Only Worried If Samuelson Stops Shooting

UConn Huskies women’s basketball freshman Katie Lou Samuelson didn’t have the best shooting preseason going 3-for-11 in each game.

Obviously there were some nerves in the first game. And in Sunday’s 80 point win over Vanguard, it could have been a combination of the bigger ball and longer three-point line with the experimental rules in place.

Either way, Samuelson isn’t worried. But even more importantly, head coach Geno Auriemma isn’t concerned either.

He’d actually be worried if Samuelson stopped shooting.

Video: UConn’s Brimah, Gibbs Providing Mentoring To Adams & Enoch

Sterling Gibbs hasn’t been a member of the UConn Huskies men’s basketball program for all that long himself. But since he is in his graduate year and fourth year of playing college basketball, he is being a mentor this season to freshman point guard Jalen Adams.

Amida Brimah is in his third year of being a part of the UConn’s men’s basketball team and this season he is also being a mentor to Norwalk, CT native Steve Enoch.

With Gibbs and Brimah advising the younger Adams and Enoch, they’ll be able to learn how to conduct themselves on and off the court in regards to everything, not just basketball. It’s definitely not an uncommon thing to see and will only benefit the young freshman for years to come.

After Saturday’s exhibition win over the UNH Chargers, head coach Kevin Ollie as well as Adams and Enoch talked about Gibbs and Brimah being mentors.
