Does Geno Get Tripped
On Saturday, January 17, the Syracuse Orange Women played the UConn Huskies, coached by Geno Auriemma.
Before the game, the Orange Women, in various pre-game interviews, sounded confident, and like they expected to be able to win.
The UConn players proceeded to double them up on the score, and Geno left his starters in, and they continued to bomb threes, until practically the end of the game.
According to the announcers and the UConn fans watching the game, Syracuse played "dirty" the entire game. Although, when one of UConn's stars, Caroline Doty, went down with what everyone hopes is not an ACL injury, it was on a fast break and no Syracuse player can be held responsible.
In the clip you see above, Nicole Michael, junior forward for Syracuse, seems to turn toward Geno and either kick him or try to trip him. Or perhaps Geno just accidently steps on her foot as she attempts to confront him. Whatever happens, she certainly turns and walks away very quickly.
