It’s been six long years since the University of Connecticut’s women’s basketball team went undefeated. Six long, suffering years since coach Geno Auriemma had a reason to smile arrogantly at the regular season came to a close.
Auriemma has a reason to smile again.
The UConn women finished 30-0 this season, beating most teams by 10 or more points in all of their games. But even with that amazing statistic, Auriemma won’t be smiling for long.
“Being 30-0 is fantastic if you’re able to finish it off down the road,” Auriemma said according to Rivals.com. “For better or worse, I’ve created an environment no matter how great we are or how wonderful we are that the real story is if we don’t win the national championship.”
It looks at though the UConn women are already focused on the Big East Tournament and an NCAA Tournament Championship. If the Huskies don’t win it all this year, I’m afraid Auriemma’s smile just might disappear altogether … forever.
