Let’s face it. He may need to write another book now following the triple-overtime masterpiece the teams played in South Bend in March.

But Jeff Goldberg, the Courant’s former UConn women’s basketball beatwriter – and author of  “Bird at the Buzzer” -will be back in Storrs today to sign copies about his book, now out in paperback, at the UConn Co-op before the second-round game on Monday at 5:30 p.m.

If you are nice to Jeff, he may offer you a walk-through in the sequel, “Free Throws Aren’t Cheap.”

    I was at that game! My friend’s Dad (big donor) didn’t want to go due to weather so I lucked out. Got into a car accident in Rhode Island en route to Gampel due to the icy roads. One of the best sporting events I’ve even been too. Thanks for the memories Sue!

    1. Lost my heart to sue/Uconn

      Sue was and is the poster girl for Women’s basketball–she pretty, nice to talk to, energetic, and presents a great image of the game.
      I was at the ND UC BE tourney title game when sue it the final shot–she drove the length of the floor went thru ND player threw up a left hand semi hook and made the basket to win.

      What is almost forgotten is the shot she made at halftime that game. Time running out ball goes to sue, she take 3/4 steps and 10 feet before the half court line let it fly as the clock expires—3 points for Sue. The place went wild.

      In that game (and many other after) Rattay stole the ball from sue and headed down court, sue taps the ball from behind and steals it–redeemed. She’d make a mistake and immediately fix it—that’s OUR sue.

      I don’t know of anyone else I would want in the picture as who Uconn truly is-only Sue.

    As a true Uconn fan, I feel blessed to have watched so many great and very good players Uconn has blessed us with. So many in fact, that I think it is crazy to even try to pick a top five or ten. To me it is like trying to pick who my favorite child was, since each had unique quality’s, personalities and talents. They were all also great team mates and excelled in the classroom which seems to get lost in the many conversations about them.

  3. Husky Dave

    On a discordant note, “Bird at the Buzzer,” is a waste of money. There are much better books written about the Huskies, books that are comprehensive, wide-ranging and don’t just drag out a known result in order to produce a book. Try “The Same River Twice.”
