Brianna Banks receives high praise

After finishing her round at the Travelers Championship Pro-Am and making sure the assembled media know that she recorded four pars, UConn associate head coach Chris Dailey provided an update on how the Huskies have been looking in the offseason.

Dailey raved about the growth of rising sophomore guard Brianna Banks, both on and off the court.

"The kids are good, they are working hard," Dailey said. "Brianna Banks is like a different kid. She is different academically, basketball wise, in the office more. She has probably been in the office more the last few weeks than all of last year. She is just (at) a different comfort level. After having gone through I think she is in a really good place. I don't know how it translates into basketball; it translates into growing up. It is definitely nice to see and that will help with basketball because she will approach things differently and in the right way. It is great to see.

"There are always conversations but you don't know what it means. You can talk until you are blue in the
face but until kids internalize it and make a change and understand it doesn't matter. She seems to have
done that now and hopefully she will continue and send her into the fall."o

Dailey also said "the freshmen are doing well, they have a nice way about them" and Kiah Stokes is planning to stay at UConn for both summer sessions "to give herself a chance to rehab (her injured foot).
"It is going to be a process, she is still in a boot. Her spirits are good."
