As architect of the dominant program in women's college basketball, Geno Auriemma knows almost everything there is to know about winning. Almost.
Auriemma has guided UConn to seven national titles, four perfect seasons and an NCAA record 90 victories in a row. And yet, with all that experience winning games over the years, Auriemma is poised to win something he's never won before — a gold medal.
The United States women play France for the Olympic title on Saturday. It would be the Americans' fifth straight gold medal, but Auriemma's first. And for once, the outspoken coach isn't sure what to say.
"For me, winning the gold medal is something that I probably won't be able to talk about or fully express until it actually happens," he says. "Because I'm sure you can't prepare for it, how you're going to feel or what it means to you personally."
