The only way to describe me is that I like winners. My favorite teams win and they win often.

- A graduate of Georgia Southern University, I am a certified athletic trainer specializing in rehabilitation and strength and conditioning. I have an MBA in Human Resources and Finance from the University of Hartford.

- I am a native of Connecticut but have spent 7 years living in Maryland, Colorado, and Georgia. There is something about New England that can't be replicated in any part of the world so I returned 5 years ago and think it's the best decision I ever made.

- I am a writer based in Connecticut covering UConn Women's Basketball and the Connecticut Sun.

- I follow and offer my unsolicited opinion on many teams including the Celtics, Patriots, UConn Men, UConn Football, Lakers, and the state of sports in general. If coaches just listened to the things that come out of my mouth they would win at least 10% of the time. I am a genius that the world is just covering... Plus I'm modest too!

UConn: Samarie Walker’s Departure Leaves Many Astonished


Samarie Walker's departure from UConn is not as transparent as it seems. Apparently it left many baffled including Walker's own parents.

"I had no idea she was considering Kentucky,’’ Auriemma said. "All I can tell you is what she told me and what she told the other coaches and what she told the other players, that she had lost in her interest in playing basketball. It had nothing to do with playing time, what position she was playing, anything of that nature. Academics. It all had to do with, `Coach, I just don’t want to play basketball any more.’ So when I came back from New York and someone told me that she’s enrolling at Kentucky Monday that was as big a shock to me as anything that I’ve heard. And I wish her the best of luck.’’

Auriemma on Samarie Walker's departure. More to come....

"It’s a privilege to earn a scholarship because you can take for granted all the costs of a college education," she says. "I feel that in return, I have to work my hardest. Coach Auriemma reminds us often that we’re on scholarship and we have to work for what we get and what we want, just like you have to work for your living when you’re out of college. It’s a great teaching point."

Maya Moore puts being a scholarship athlete into perspective.

"I know there would not be this many people in this room if we were chasing a women’s record. The reason why everyone is having a heart attack the last four or five days is a bunch of women are threatening to break a men’s record and everyone is up in arms about it. All the women are happy as hell and can’t wait to come in and ask questions. All the men who love women’s basketball are excited, and all the miserable bastards who follow men’s basketball and don’t want us to break the record are all here because they are pissed. So that’s the way it is. "If we were breaking a women’s record, everybody would go: 'Aren’t those girls nice. Just give them two paragraphs in USA Today or give them one line on the bottom of ESPN and let’s send them back where they belong in the kitchen.' But because we are breaking a men’s record, we have a lot of people paying attention." Geno in the Press Room following his team's 81-50 victory over Ohio State

Time Q&A with UConn Coach Geno Auriemma

Because they're going to look at Maya and look at Kobe and go "well, she's not Kobe Bryant." Well, f---, who is? Who is? I would challenge 90% of the people watching television, men or women, to come out here and do what Maya does. They couldn't do it. But because at some point they played, they think 'what's the big deal? I made a jump shot. I took it to the basket when I was in high school. I did this, I did that.

"If a woman is a girlie girl, a sissy girl, I can't deal with that," Auriemma says bluntly. He puts his hands up. "I want to say, 'Throw the pass right here'. Is that too hard? Am I asking you to go in the lab and cure cancer? Am I asking you to find a way to save Haiti? No. I'm asking when a guy puts a hand up, put the ball right here. And if you're a kid, don't you want that expectation of you? Instead of 'Come on sweetheart. Try to hit them in the hands next time'?"
