UConn coaches to receive Olympic rings at Pittsburgh game

There is a ceremony set up on Feb. 26 for UConn coach Geno Auriemma, the head coach of the gold-medal winning U.S. Olympic team, as well as associate head coach Chris Dailey, assistant coaches Marisa Moseley and Shea Ralph and video coordinator Keith Anderson to receive Olympic rings. Also, Bria Hartley will be recognized for being a member of the winning 3x3 World Cup squad while U-18 team members Morgan Tuck and Breanna Stewart will also be honored.

Former UConn stars Swin Cash (pictured at right with Tamika Catchings) and Maya Moore (right) received their rings last night as they took part in NBA All-Star game weekend.

Courtesy of the wonderful folks at USA Basketball, here are quotes from Cash and Moore.

"It’s awesome, awesome and awesome again," Cash said. "The fact that it’s gold and has the diamonds in it, it symbolizes exactly what the gold medal was about. I love it. It’s nice and classy …  sleek."

"What a special way to get the ring," Moore said. "In front of all the basketball fans and just to see everybody’s faces again. It was a really special moment."
