We told you earlier this week that former UConn guard Carla Berube recently won her 200th game as the head coach at Tufts.
Her former college coach was asked about the accomplishment [and the fact she did it quicker than he did at UConn] after Wednesday’s win at Georgetown.
“She [Berube] reached 200 faster because she is coaching a lot smarter players than I did and she doesn’t have to coach anybody like herself,” Auriemma siad. “The most surprised person that Carla Berue became a coach is me. When I saw her team, I am not surprised she won 200 games. She is a hell of a coach, and believe it or not – and this is impossible for people who were around her for four years [at UConn] – she is a great communicator. That would never have dawned on me to say that so I am thrilled for her.”
