Former Connecticut star aids in Duke star's development

Part of my interview with Duke freshman phenom Elizabeth Williams was spent talking about her relationship with former Bridgeport Central star Nadine Domond, who founded a training service after her professional career ended.

I filed a notebook for Tuesday's edition of the Register with the lead item focusing on Williams' thoughts on Domond, who is expected to be at tonight's game.

Here's some of what she had to say about Domond, who is still sixth on the Connecticut career scoring list.
"One of my AAU teammates at the time had trained with her and said 'hey, I want you to meet this lady, she is a really great trainer,'” said Williams, Duke’s leading scorer and rebounder who has already broken the Blue Devils’ single season record for blocked shots for a freshman. “This player, she really came a long way from the season before so that was how I got introduced to her.
“She talked a lot about footwork. When I was young she tried to get me to be patient as a player and make the right moves.”

It was just announced that the Feb. 25 UConn/Marquette game has moved from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. The game could set up a huge regular-season finale for UConn as the Huskies may need to beat Notre Dame two days later just to earn a share of the Big East regular-season title.
