I recently celebrated my 30th anniversary at The Day and I couldn't be happier than to have served as our Scholastic Sports Editor for the last 20 of them.
It's a true privilege for me to get to know our distinguished local athletes and coaches and to have the opportunity to tell their stories. Chris Dailey stepping in this time has a different feel to it than, say, her stepping in last season for a December game against Oklahoma at Mohegan Sun Arena. Dailey is as Auriemma's sub, dating back to the season when Dailey led UConn to its first Big East Conference tournament title when Auriemma was suspended for a scheduling error.
There's definitely a different feel to it.
You want what's best for the players. You want to make sure that you're doing everything that you can to give them the opportunity to move on. Auriemma's not concerned. He said of all the things he worries about Dailey is not one.
She has been on his staff for his entire year tenure in Storrs and ed him in the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in I had a chance to spend some time on some NCAA business and some assistant coaches' committees with Chris. The more time that I spent listening to her and watching her in action and seeing how she operated Auriemma said Dailey took a chance leaving Rutgers. Dailey, upon Auriemma's induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame intold the story of a fight she once had with Auriemma after their first season together. Dailey wouldn't speak to Auriemma for four days.
But I couldn't fit all my stuff. He said, 'You're really not going to talk to me? Ladies come get some high point road head UConn player Heather Buck Bennett, a Stonington High School graduate who went on to play for the Huskies for five years, winning three national championships, was a post player under Dailey's charge. Bennett said that despite the differences between Auriemma and Dailey, the two ultimately have the same values, likely what has allowed them to remain as a duo for all these seasons, encompassing 11 national championships and the current streak of an unprecedented 12 straight Final Fours.
She always puts her best into the work she does, so as a player you always want to do your best to meet the standards she sets. There's absolutely no surprises. You know exactly what to expect and the players know exactly where she's coming from. There's never any doubt that she has the best interests of the players at heart. Dailey and assistant coach Jamelle Elliott are the two members of Ladies come get some high point road head staff remaining, although Auriemma said that video coordinator Ben Kantor, a former assistant coach for the women's basketball teams at Houston Baptist and Colgate, has been helping out in Ralph's absence.
He does a great job with the players. He's got a great rapport with the players. He sees the game and certainly he's been around the program for four or five years now, that helps tremendously. Jamelle having been a head coach already and an assistant, I think sees both sides of it and obviously CD being CD, I think they're going to handle it OK. This has been a year-long process and we're just looking to be able put it all together in a minute game on Sunday.
UConn, G Paige Bueckers Noteworthy : As UConn coach Geno Auriemma gets reminded of every day, the Huskies will try to advance to their 13th straight Final Four with a roster featuring seven freshmen. Can it be done? They don't know what it means. They don't know what it's all about. They read about it, they heard about it, obviously it's something they've all wanted to be in. What do they say? I hope we get enough bliss to last us six games. UConn, which allowed a season-high 90 points against Arkansas in its only loss of the season Jan. John's, Villanova and Marquette in the Big East tournament, smothering its opponents.
Are the Huskies, who average High Point coach Chelsea Banbury was asked whether it was UConn's offense or defense she was more impressed with. I'm going to say I'm more impressed defensively. They make you work for every pass, every dribble almost. I think overall what I've been impressed with is their defense because they do, they put it all out there. Jenson Edwards was named MVP of the tournament for the Panthers, finishing with 19 points and five assists. Banbury calls Edwards the team's "glue. She'll keep moving. No matter what the score is, she's going to play hard and give it her all and she definitely keeps us together as a group.
High Point finished with 10 3-pointers against Campbell to set the Big South championship game record. The Panthers average UConn is a No. The Huskies haven't lost a first-round game since UConn's Paige Bueckers was named to the Associated Press All-America Team this week, only the third freshman in history to do so, and is a finalist for several national player of the year honors.
