Geno Auriemma’s Response To Writers On UCONN Ruining Women Basketball: “Don’t Watch”

Boston Globe writer Dan Shaugnessy said that UCONN women basketball team is ruining women basketball due to all the blowouts. He tweeted after Saturday’s game against Mississippi State:

UConn Women beat Miss St. 98-38 in NCAA tourney. Hate to punish them for being great, but they are killing women’s game. Watch? No thanks

The Courtant reported that head coach Geno Auriemma responded to the columnist bashing his girls for blowout games:

“He [Shaughnessy] has a lot of comments from up in Boston. My question is, don’t watch.

“Don’t watch. Nobody’s putting a gun to your head to watch. So don’t watch. And don’t write about it. Spend your time on things that you think are important. If you don’t think this is important, don’t pay any attention to it. The fact that you have to comment on it, says something about you, doesn’t it? We are where we are. We are what we are. You know? We do what we do. We do what we do.”

UCONN should not be criticized for being great, Get a team that will beat them.
