UConn women always a top draw

One of the biggest hands from the Rentschler Field crowd yesterday came when the two-time defending national champions were introduced between the first and second quarters. Bria Hartley and Stefanie Dolson, who recently wrapped up their rookie seasons with the WNBA's Washington Mystics were on hand for the festivities.

Before the football game began the members of the 2014-15 squad (minus freshman Kia Nurse who is training with the Canadian national team) signed autographs and the fans were lining up well before the team was set to arrive. One of the players (I believe it was freshman Sadie Edwards) showed up wearing the bucket hats football coach Bob Diaco dons at practices.

Also, as I was waiting to go on the pre-game radio show on WTIC (hosted by Bob Joyce, the voice of the UConn women's basketball program) I listened in on an interview done with UConn AD Warde Manuel. It was when he was asked about the Champions Center that I thought was worthy of mention in this blog.

"We are coming up to finalizing the furnishings but they (men's and women's basketball teams) are utilizing the courts.

"We will have a wing (for the trophies). The front of the building is designed for the trophies and the great history that we have."
