: : : That's kind of been UCLA's hiring focus in all the sports over the years--get the best coach they can at bargain prices!

: : They have a balanced budget and still have contenders in almost every sport they field. Would you want it like Rutgers which pays someone like CVS who is the fourth highest paid person at Rutgers, has the largest deficit of any Div 1 school and has taken funds allocated for academics and illegally channeled them to their dying athletics program? Or maybe like Cal which had such a deficit that a few years ago, they tried to cancel their baseball, gymnastics -men and women, and womens lacrosse?
: Don't blame the UCLA Coach, UCONN has superior talent. I'm a Jordan C fan, but she played awful and although her form is better than Lonzo, her results were like his. Just saw her throwing up bricks from the outside that didn't draw rim and desperate circus drives to the basket. She missed a couple of looks to the Auzzie Frosh who was hitting. She should know by now, set up the teammate that is scoring well in the game and keep going to her.
:: Close should've seen this coming. It's not enough to be super athletic and talented. You need the RIGHT personnel to win. Every single UConn player on the floor is a shooter. Their worst shooter is probably better than UCLAs's best. UConn had too many perimeter threats, which spreads the defense...no matter how good they are. Spread the floor on them, they go north/south on you and score. Bunch up on defense, they make the extra pass and KNOCK down the three. It's a SYSTEM. She, nor anyone else, don't have the personnel to effectively compete with Geno. He always has a PLAN on how his players are going to play out on the floor as a team. No amount of coaching or practice is going to fix a systemic, recruiting based, personnel problem.
