Connecticut is a lovely New England State not far from me. The players, student-athletes, of the NCAA champ are from California (2), Colorado (2), Alaska, New Mexico, Ohio, Fl, Pa and a couple from Vermont. This is a matter of recruiting. They signed a new girl from California who scored 3000 points in high school to hopefully replace Taurasi. College athletics is not representative of very much. The have one Conn. player on the roster, senior guard Maria Conlon. Odd that most of the U Conn (overwhelming %) student body is from New England and surroundign states. If Okafur, the men's superstar, had played for the University of Texas where he grew up do you think the Huskie men would have won the nat'l title? College sports speaks voulems about us as a nation.
