By now, you likely know you need to know about UConn’s 76-43 win over Villanova Tuesday at the XL Center before 10,324.
But I wanted to pass along a pretty funny line from Geno Auriemma about Kelly Faris, who had four assists, six points and eight rebounds in 28 minutes.
Faris had been struggling taking care of the ball of late, a fate coinciding with her heightened national popularity following her performance in the second half against Duke.
Here is what Geno said when asked whether Stef Dolson and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis had ascended into the national spotlight:
“Well, we put Kelly Faris on Mt. Rushmore and she hasn’t played well since,” Geno quipped. “We need to slow down and make sure we don’t carve out any more busts of our players.”
