Going for a (2nd) Gold

University of Connecticut's Naismith Hall of Fame and Women's Basketball Hall of Fame Head Coach Geno Auriemma, who guided the USA Basketball Women's National Team to gold medals at the 2010 FIBA World Championship and 2012 Olympic Games, will return to coach the USA National Team through 2016, USA Basketball today announced. Auriemma's selection was made by the USA Basketball Women's National Team Steering Committee and approved by the USA Basketball Board of Directors. With 28-year coaching veteran Auriemma at the helm, the USA Basketball Women's National Team will compete in the 2014 FIBA World Championship (Sept. 27 - Oct. 5 in Ankara and Istanbul, Turkey), and if the USA qualifies, the 2016 Summer Olympic Games (Aug. 5 - 21 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), as well as additional USA training camps and exhibition games.

Home Game Locations announced.

The defending national champion University of Connecticut women’s basketball team will play 9 of its 18 home games at Gampel Pavilion, 8 at the XL Center and 1 at a location (reports indicate Mohegan Sun Arena and the Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport are the two finalists) to be announced shortly. The Huskies are 285-19 (.936) all-time at Gampel Pavilion and 136-14 (.907) at the XL Center.

He's Back...

While it won't become "official" until tomorrow, sources have already leaked what has long been speculated. That UConn Women's Basketball Head Coach Geno Auriemma will, in fact, return for a 2nd 4-year stint as Head Coach of the USA Women's Basketball Senior National Team. More to come tomorrow after the press conference which is scheduled to be held at UConn (if that doesn't give it away, I don't know what would) at 1pm ET.
