With Connecticut's win Tuesday night, Huskies head coach Geno Auriemma tied Pat Summitt with eight NCAA National Championships.
During his post-game press conference, Auriemma said he was honored to reach the same accomplishments as Summitt. "The only person I compare myself to is Pat Summitt and to be there in that spot with her means a lot to me."
Lady Vols head coach Holly Warlick met with the Knoxville media on Wednesday and said the two rivals coaches have mended their friendship. "I think they have a great friendship now." However, Warlick said they don't have any plans to renew the rivalry and add them to the regular season schedule.
Despite a disappointing loss in the Elite Eight, Warlick said she's excited for this off-season. NCAA now allows teams to practice up to two hours a week during the summer, so the entire Lady Vols squad is staying in Knoxville during the summer break. All three incoming freshmen will also be on campus for summer workouts.
