Remember how great we felt about ourselves when cute but media savvy Mo’ne Davis participated in the Little League World Series. Little Mo’ne used her 70 mph fastball and knee-buckling curveball to shutout the Nashville team. Yay us! Yay equality! Yay baseball!
Then Mo’ne became a media darling. She made the cover of Sports Illustrated. She was praised by pundits. She was interviewed and feted. She even got a call from UConn women’s basketball coach Gene Auriemma, a classy gesture. Or was it? Like every good feeling in life, this one has passed. The cause for our wake up call was the NCAA declaring Auriemma’s call a recruiting violation.
Geno Auriemma Got Caught Patting Baylor Coach Kim Mulkey’s Butt, But Everyone Was Totally OK With It
No. 3 UConn beat No. 1 Baylor Monday night in Connecticut in arguably the biggest game of the women’s college basketball season. But that wasn’t the story. The story happened before the game, when Huskies coach Geno Auriemma was caught in the act of patting opposing coach Kim Mulkey’s butt, as you can see above. It truly is one of the photos of the year. But believe it or not, Auriemma has an explanation!
Quick! What would be the most uncomfortable thing the most famous women’s basketball coach in America could be sued for? Time’s up! If you guessed “firing someone because your alleged sexual advances on them were turned down,” you win.
“I Love Jesus And I’m Not Even A Republican” – UConn’s Geno Auriemma, Somehow Talking About Conference Realignment
Two things you need to know about UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma. One: phenomenal coach. One of the best ever, in any sport. He’s built what one could call a dynasty without exaggeration (look at the record), and for as long as he’s there, UConn will continue to be so. Two: he’s outspoken. Very outspoken.
The same qualities that make UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma so easy and fun to dislike also always put him on the verge of a good quote.
Before this season, UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma said he thought his team’s unbeaten streak would end this year. He was right – last night, his team fell to Stanford 71-59, snapping a 90-game unbeaten streak.
Last night, the women’s basketball team from the University of Connecticut notched its historic 89th straight win. President Barack Obama gave coach Geno Auriemma a phone call afterward – while Auriemma conducted his postgame press conference.
With a win tonight, The Connecticut Huskies will set the record for the longest consecutive NCAA basketball winning streak with 89 straight wins, eclipsing the UCLA men’s basketball teams of the 1970s. How significant would it be? Several media types have weighed in.
