Geno pulling for Connecticut Sun tomorrow

Make no mistake that there are few people Geno Auriemma admires more or has more respect for than the Indiana Fever's Tamika Catchings, who helped the Auriemma coached U.S. teams win the 2010 World Championship and 2012 Olympic gold medals. But with five of his former UConn players on the Connecticut Sun, there's no questioning where his allegiances rest in tomorrow's decisive game in the Eastern Conference finals.

"It is always good when other people say it but I don't know any other school that has won more titles than ours," Auriemma said. "I don't know any other school that has had more people win WNBA titles than we have with Sue's two, Diana's two, Swin's three, Maya that is a lot. I like a lot of the kids that I coached this summer but selfishly I am rooting for a Connecticut/Minnesota final so I can hopefully get a chance to see them play."

Auriemma will be hosting recruiting Saniya Chong and Erica McCall, who are on their official visits, so he won't be able to make it to Mohegan Sun for tomorrow's game. But if the Sun win Auriemma would like to make it down there for game three and game four (if necessary) next weekend.
