I’m mean, just read this for yourself and draw your own conclusion about how UConn’s Hall of Fame coach feels about his fabulous freshman, Breanna Stewart….
“I think God played a huge trick on everybody else in college basketball. Breanna Stewart walks out on the court and people are thinking, “This is the best athlete in college basketball by far? Really, that’s got to be an April fool’s joke.’
“When you look at her, you don’t expect her to be able to do the things she does, both good and bad. But I am sure that teams don’t expect her to block shots the way she does, to be around the rim as much as she is, to be able to make the plays that most 6-4 or 6-5 kids cant make.
“I know Brittney Griner is 6-8 and she is everything people say she is. But she can’t make the plays Breanna can. That said, Breanna can’t do some of the things Brittney can.
“But there is something about Stewie. When its going well for her, I just have confidence she can do anything on both ends of the floor.”
