UConn's Auriemma a finalist for Naismith Coach of Year award

UConn's Geno Auriemma is one of the four finalists for the Naismith Women's College Coach of the Year, an honor he has received six times.

Auriemma has led the top-ranked Huskies to 31 straight wins and a 32-1 record as UConn is the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament for a record 10th time.

Florida State's Sue Semrau, South Carolina's Dawn Staley and Courtney Banghart of Princeton are the other finalists.

Auriemma won the Naismith Coach of the Year honor in the 1994-95, 1996-97, 1999-2000, 2001-02, 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons.

Interesting tidbit: Staley has been assistant coach under Geno with USWNT in 2012 and 2014.

It sure looks like she's learned a few things from that association.
