At the end of Geno Auriemma’s talk to the sold out gathering at Monday’s Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce breakfast at the Crowne Plaza in Cromwell, the UConn coach consented to a brief Q&A with the audience.
One gentleman wanted to know what the story was with sophomore Kiah Stokes:
“We can’t figure out why some days she is great and some days she’s not so great,” Auriemma said. “It’s frustrating. Really, really frustrating. But everyone has their own timeline and you can’t rush it. Some players are great right away and some take a long time to be great. And some never become great. At least, she’s still young.
“It comes down to this: Two days ago, she looked like Brittney Griner. And yesterday at practice, she looked like Britney Spears.”
