Congrats, Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi on being added to the 2008 women's Olympic basketball team. This speaks highly of their workmanship and competitive nature. Way to make the University proud, ladies!!!
Prized incoming freshmen for the UConn women's program, Elena Delle Donne, has left campus. Oh my, I hope that all is well for Elena. I hope that she can come back and join the UConn family. If not, I wish her well whereever she ends up. Good luck, Elena.
Awwwwww heck!!! Things are getting interesting in Huskyville. Stanley Robinson is on the hot seat for academic reasons and Coach Calhoun wants Robinson to get it in gear or get to steppin.
Nate Miles, a 6-foot-7 swingman from Toledo, Ohio wants to come to UConn. But having been to five...yes, five, high schools and missing significant chunks of school because of transfers and dealing with his sister's cancer (I hope that she is well or getting better), is waiting in limbo because the NCAA has to see if he meets the standard requirements for attending college. God knows we can not afford to take a hit with our graduation numbers.
This is shaping up to be a fun basketball season in Husky Nation.
Well, it is official, Nate Miles is coming to UConn. A lot of people are going to question this move, mainly because of Miles' past, but I think that he will be a model student-athlete. Welcome, Nate to the UConn family.
