Auriemma Reacts to Doty Injury

By Mel Greenberg

NEW YORK -
UConn coach Geno Auriemma made a few comments here Saturday night about the latest knee injury to Germantown Academy's Caroline Doty, who will miss the entire season with Huskies.

Auriemma and his wife Kathy attended the WNBA New York Liberty game in Madison Square Garden against the defending champion Phoenix Mercury. Both teams have former Huskies who Auriemma coached in college and some, such as reigning MVP Diana Taurasi of Phoenix, he'll coach again next month on the USA team competing in the FIBA World Championship.

Doty, a native of Doylestown near Philadelphia, suffered here third injury late last month working on a basketball drill although the the tear wasn't officially confirmed until last Thursday.

She also suffered one to the same knee her senior year in high school and one early in her freshman season.

"We knew for sure when she went to the doctors, Thurdsday," Auriemma said, adding that she had phoned him after she got hurt.

"She said, `I think I did something' Auriemma related. "So she came up to school, we took a look at it, we took her down to New York and it kind of confirmed what we already knew or suspected anyway."

"It's unfortunate, you know, these things," he said and was reminded of the repeating number of similar injuries suffered by his assistant Shea Ralph during her UConn career.

"Too many times, too many times," said Auriemma, whose team has won back-to-back unbeaten NCAA titles and will carry a 78-game win streak into the season, 10 short of the record 88 set by the great UCLA men's teams under the late Hall of Famer John Wooden.

"You don't like for it to happen once, and then when it reoccurs -- the kid has been college three years now and only has one year to show for it," added Auriemma, himself a Hall of Famer.

Then Auriemma cracked a smile, saying, "At least she's still undefeated. She hasn't lost a game right?"
