More from Geno on discrimination allegations

Thanks to the folks at USA Basketball, here is a denial from UConn women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma about the allegations made by a former NYPD officer who worked security at a 2009 event where Auriemma coached the U.S. national team in a tournament in Ekaterinburg, Russia.

"This claim is beyond false," Auriemma said in a statement. "I will defend myself to the fullest, and I'm confident that the truth will ultimately prevail.  In the meantime, I remain focused on representing the United States this summer and getting our team ready to compete for the gold medal."
The only comment USA Basketball, which is also included in a lawsuit filed on behalf of Kelley Hardwick in a New York court today, was:
"USA Basketball just became aware of this lawsuit today.  As it is our policy not to discuss pending legal matters, we will have no further comment while this case is active."

There will always be loyal fans (cult members?) who think Joe Pa did no wrong.

And there will always be loyal fans (cult members?) who think Geno could do no wrong.

Fans and media never know everything about a coach or player.

Family members never know everything about other family members.

Everyone has a secret. Everyone lies.

People believe what they want to believe.

Fans and media were fooled by Tiger Woods for many years.

Fans and media believed McGwire, Sosa, Bonds, and Clemens were legit because they needed heroes.

There is no way this lady would publically humiliate herself with 100% lies.

Geno has more than enough money to take this lady down in court, if he is innocent.

If Geno settles out of court, then there are some truths that he wants to bury.
