Geno loves recruit's low-maintainance attitude

When I spoke with Geno Auriemma yesterday about his highly-touted incoming freshman Breanna Stewart, he couldn't say enough good things about the down to earth persona of her as well as her parents.

"She has been unbellievably great to work with in the whole recruiting process," Auriemma said. "The people in USA Basketball are amazed that a young kid can carry herself the way she does. They ask her to play in every single event that they have. Her mom and dad are down the earth. They are grounded people who aren't trying to live their lives through their daughter. It is just really refreshing to see where she comes from, once you do that you can really appreciate where she is right now."
Stewart and her Cicero-North Syracuse (N.Y.) team will play undefeated West Springfield (Mass.) High at the HoopHall Classic in Springfield in a little bit. The game was scheduled to start at 6 but looks like it will be a little later than that because the boys' game preceding it is still in the third quarter.
