: : : : : UConn was big favorite, chokes again!
: : : : was rooting for Notre Dame but chokes is pretty harsh. It was a competitive game and fun to watch

: : : Congrats to Uconn on another great season and Good luck to ND, all that adrenaline might lead to a little let down in the Championship game.

: : Uconn looked timid about driving into the paint. A lot of talk about the foul disparity between ND and Uconn but there was little question that ND was more aggressive and was inviting contact.

: : Even though Dangerfield and UConn played a more complete and smarter game against UCLA, this situation suggested how good Canada would have been with a coach like Geno and how much he could have used a player like her. Uconn definitely needed stronger dribble penetration and Dangerfield seemed almost scared.

: : And to be fair, UConn had three returning All Americans (first in history), the #1 recruit (didn't play) and the greatest coach in history but still lost. That was much more of an underachievement than Cori Close.

: so you are critiquing Geno in who he decides to recruit to UCONN? I think he has done just fine with his recruits and yes when his team is use to blowing out competition and gets in a close game they tighten up a bit, but they did close two 5 point deficits (regulation 20 sec, OT 45 sec) and in the last two years it has literally taken 2 last second OT shots to beat them (72-2), and the last 4 years I think they are 148-3. Yea they definitely need to change up what they are doing because it is not working.

Geno recruited Jordin and Sabrina but both went elsewhere. They might have helped in both semis that UConn lost. Even he said he needed a stronger player who could have lead the team when they were losing focus.

He also recruited Megan Walker who did not play one minute yesterday.
