UConn women pulling for men’s squad
Question of the Day
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Connecticut has a Final Four game against Notre Dame on Sunday night _ but that won’t stop them from cheering on the men.
The Huskies had an open practice on Saturday afternoon at Conseco Fieldhouse, and a lot of players were looking forward to watching UConn play Kentucky late Saturday in the men’s Final Four in Houston.
The women’s team planned to have dinner and watch the men’s game as a group.
“I know we’re all really excited,” guard Tiffany Hayes said. “It’s great to have both teams in the Final Four. I think it’s good for our university and just shows how competitive basketball is at UConn.”
Center Stefanie Dolson said it’s extra special when the women’s team gets together to watch the men’s squad. She said the two teams support each other.
“We don’t get a lot of chances to interact and talk with each other because we’re practicing all the time, but we see each other in the training room, we pass each other,” she said. “I know a couple of us are always at the guys games, any one that we can make.”
Guard Kelly Faris, a Plainfield, Ind., native, is interested in both men’s semifinals. Her homestate Butler Bulldogs advanced to the Final Four for a second straight year, this time for a game against Virginia Commonwealth.
“We like to cheer on our guys, and of course, I like to cheer on Butler,” she said.
So he turned to a writer from San Jose, Calif., and asked about getting a baseball signed by Mays. Then he looked at a writer from New York and said he’d like a ball signed by Whitey Ford.
When another writer asked Blair if there was anything he wanted from Connecticut, the A&M coach answered without missing a beat: “Geno’s paycheck.”
Geno, of course, is Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma, who has won seven national championships and has a salary to match his accomplishments.
“I’m just another pretty face up here,” Blair said. “And Geno’s got it all.”
