Who should coach the Connecticut Sun?


  1. That game was good up until the last 6 minutes. I don't know what Diggins was going thru but whatever it is she needs to put to the side. I found myself defending her lastnight from the people who said she was overrated based on her performance. Sims missed 5 games but it looked more like Skylar did. Overall, the best Team won…#Sic'em

  2. Odyssey Sims schooled everybody's princess Diggins. I don't necessarily agree with Mulkey that Sims is the best PG in CWBB but she is strong particularly coming off an injury and playing on the road.

    Diggins was 4 of 19, 0 of 5 from three and didn't shoot a free throw. Maybe a performance like that can be explained away on the road but at home not so much. The only thing that will keep ND in top 10 is lack of overall strength in the sport this year.

    Called the win. Missed the spread by 8.

  3. It saddens me that K Faris won't ever get the credit she deserves from the Media. Omnu may not put up 15-20 pts a night but she deserves to be in the conversation. Players like Faris does not come around often, and I'm glad for the 4 years she's dedicated to UConn. Her work ethic is relentless, and her laid back demeanor is a plus. She will forever be an AA in my Eyes. #ToughAsNails

  4. I thought Faris looked great against Maryland. She doesn't seem like a pure 1, but she does a little bit of everything and does it all really well. I thought it was pretty cool that she wasn't afraid to take on Maryland's bigs down low when she had too. Normally beat them too.

    Seems like she's the "straw that stirs the drink" for UConn. Probably in any other program she would have been a rock star.
