U forgot Sue Bird and Diana Taursi. Swin Cash had a nice impact on our program. But with the combo of Greene/Moore/EDD/Renee and the other freshmen that are coming in, UConn women's program would have been scary. We are still scary, but the addition of EDD would have made us UCLA Kareem scary good!!
Also, mad props on Kemba for getting the MVP in the U-18 USA. The brother dropped 21 against Argentina.
Quote from the coach: "From the first day of trials, it was evident that Kemba was a great leader," said U.S. coach Bob McKillop, from Davidson College. "The fact that he was acknowledged as the MVP of this tournament is indicative that not only we at USA Basketball think he's a great leader, but FIBA Americas thought he was a great leader as well."
Way to go, Kemba. Just bring that same mindset to UConn buddy. Be a LEADER!!!
