Last night, the UConn Huskies women’s basketball team easily dispatched of Team SRP in their final tuneup before the 2008-09 campaign gets underway on Sunday. After the game, Geno Auriemma noted that freshman Heather Buck could be out for an undetermined amount of time. And of course Geno being Geno, he had to make a snarky remark about it.
“It’s just two days ago that it really kind of came to the surface,’’ Geno said. “She’s a healthy kid. She’s been healthy her whole life. It’s being thrown in with these slugs that got her sick I think. She was living in Stonington and eating right and getting rest and doing all the things that nice kids do and hanging around nice people. She was always healthy. Now put her in with these McDonald’s-eating vigilantes all the bad stuff happens.’’
As we used to say with the dreadlocked former outfielder for the Boston Red Sox, that’s just “Geno being Geno.”
