    Lauren must have a Boston Boy friend. One would think she’d go to Calif. But boys are a stronger pull. Where ever she may be I hope she is happier and gets a few minutes. But BC is now ACC and they are a power conference. Unless she shows some talents she didn’t show at Uconn, she will continue to be a practice player. The kid has a good shot. Once she learns dedication and defense–she could get time at BC. Good luck girl.

    Johnson was a walking wounded and was a pity recruit. Geno and UConn spent bucks on her physically for her knees and rehab. Walker — arrived with one foot in Kentucky with her buddies from HS. Only kudos’ to Geno for being so caring and allowing Walker to transfer (he didn’t have to let her out of her scholarship–you know, he could have kept her at UConn without playing) .This is a posiive way to spin this–as well as the negative.

    Walterlines@yahoo.com, how about making what you post intelligible instead of a mouth full of nonsense. As for Lauren, Geno said she wanted to be closer to home. I didn’t see where Lauren was quoted as saying that. Lauren, I hope you get a chance to play and prove that you have the skills to compete. As for Geno, has Heather Buck been a drain on the program, and if not, is that because she chose to stay at UConn? Lauren and Michala want a chance to play. It’s not like they get to do college a second time. This is their one and only chance. I’m all for them giving it a try at another college. Lauren, I’ll be watching you at BC for your last two years. Work hard this year and be ready to go next year.

    Certainly the expectations of her will be much lower. They will be happy to compete in the ACC. Dreams of tournaments and final fours are just that for that school.
