My guess it that Geno took Juhasz as no-cost and available backup insurance. I can't believe he promised her anything other than competitive opportunity. However, I don't think the 6-4 incoming HS All-American Amari DeBerry will feel too good about a graduate transfer now clogging her anticipated spot -- to say nothing of Aubrey Griffin and Mir McLean, who had been the forward spot subs this season.



Griffin and McLean strike me as energizer bunnies, but it's almost frantic and out of control. I think y'all can do better. Who that better is is unclear of course. jmo. And McLean was just a Freshman, so maybe will improve with time. Griffin is someone who is very athletic and looks great one minute, then makes horrible decisions the next.


If either of them could develop more offense they would be an integral part of the rotation. They are probably the best defenders on the team and maybe the two best rebounders. And what you see as frantic usually disrupts the other team a lot more than it does UConn. This coming season they will likely be role players and championship teams need role players. I love seeing Griffin come into the game because she produces numbers right away. (and most aren't fouls and to's). She brings energy just like Mühl and UConn has lacked that for several years now.

It’s interesting because in a recent zoom session called Undefeated (Undefeateds is a four part zoom series in which Geno hosts key members of each of his undefeated teams to reminisce and catch up what everyone’s doing now) Geno commented on how Well the 1995 team worked together and that when they took the floor they did some amazing things that they never did in practice. Which prompted Rebecca Lobo to come in it’s funny that you say that because back then when we got a decent lead you would Start subbing us out. Now you just don’t worry about that anymore no matter what the lead is. Geno just sort of shrugs like well things are different now.


Damn, Lobo didn't hold back! Surprised

If the thought here is that, suddenly, Geno suspects he made need more than 6 quality players on his roster, all I can do is smh.

Geno haters should send Lauren Cox Xmas cards every year. Had she matriculated at UConn rather than Baylor, Geno would likely have 3 more rings.

Ohio State transfer Dorka Juhász hopes playing for UConn will help her achieve WNBA dreams and make home country of Hungary proud
https://gazette.com/ap/sports/ohio-state-transfer-dorka-juh-sz-hopes-playing-for-uconn-will-help-her-achieve-wnba/article_633d1ded-d218-582c-ade7-c36611c9987b.html

Quote:
After three seasons with the Buckeyes, Juhász faced another fork in the road: graduating in three years from Ohio State, she was well-positioned to explore other basketball opportunities. After making that initial leap to move to an entirely new country, this decision was a bit easier.

“That was a basketball decision for me. I loved everything about Ohio State. I love the girls. I had no problems anywhere here,” Juhász said. “I felt like for my basketball career, I needed to take that step to enter the portal and look for an opportunity where I can just develop and make sure that I am doing everything in my power and am in a program that can prepare me for a professional life.”


Quote:
One of my biggest goals is to go to the WNBA. As a Hungarian girl, that’s something that I’m super looking forward to [after] playing at UConn and improving, if it takes me there,” Juhász said. “I’m trying to get the most out of my experience and making sure I can get better as much as I can to develop as a player here.”


Quote:
Juhász says she doesn’t have any expectations and isn’t assuming anything as far as playing time or starting goes. As a stretch four who shot 40% from the arc her sophomore year, she brings a dimension to the Huskies’ frontcourt that they haven’t had in years.

The bolded part has to be a kick to the crotch of McGuff and his staff....the idea that after 3 years in his program, a player needs to go elsewhere for one season in order to develop for the next level......

Look at the box score of the NC game and tell me Stanford actually went 11 deep in close games.

Stanford did not go 11 deep ... but they have a lot of serviceable players who can get on the court and not kill you -- and in some cases (Prechtel), help you.
