Transcript for The UConn women's basketball coach appears live on 'GMA'
We want to bring in someone else who knows a little thing or two about basketball, a lot, coach Geno auriemma from UConn, the huskies are on the verge of history going for their 100th consecutive win tonight which would make them the first NCAA team ever with triple-digit winning streak and I know, my good friend Geno auriemma joins us from the great state of Connecticut there on the campus of UConn. I know you feel the love, Geno. Before I ask about your team. You heard these kids. You're from New Jersey. How does it make you feel that this team, they stuck together and they said, you know what, if we all can't play, none of us are going to play. I for the life of me can't understand the decision. I would like to think that smart and reasonable people understand this. My son played at that same age in a rec league and there were two girls on the team and one of the girls was one of the best players on the team so I don't care what age you are, on the court, on the playing field, there's no such thing as bias, you know, these kids have learned at a really young age what's right and what's wrong and I hope these -- the boys on that team grow up and when they're adults, they have the same empathy and the same feelings and the same level of respect for the women that they're going to be working with as they do for their teammates today. That would be a great lesson for these kids. That's a great point there, Geno. Creates that foundation. You know, Geno, we go back a long way, Orange and white on Monday night, wnba games. We'll go down -- it's not throwback Thursday or flashback Friday but here's a moment from our time together. Hey, Rebecca, I want to know did you give Geno broadcasting tip. Only when he says good things in then you take the credit. First Rebecca lobo, now, Geno auriemma. What's going on here. You're getting better all the time. Thank you. Let's go back to the studio. How young you were, Geno. Even George said, he's still good looking. He is good looking. You had those great players like Rebecca lobo and so many over the years but in all seriousness, Geno, the way you have established this wonderful program, the graduation rate, these wonderful kids that come in and out of the program, what is it about this team that you're on the brink of making history tonight? I don't know. I've been asked the question so many times that I've run out of ways to answer it other than to say this team is a by-product of if you go back as far as Rebecca lobo what was started, you know, over 20 years ago and this team is reaping the rewards of that and they've added to it. You know, because it's not easy coming here to play basketball knowing what's happened before you and knowing that how hard it's going to be to duplicate it much less add to it, so, I'm really proud of the way they've handled it. I'm proud of what we've been able to accomplish up to this point. We kind of take it in stride and everybody is making a big deal over it tonight because of the number 100, but tomorrow morning we're going to wake up and I don't think we're going to feel that much different. I've tried to tell these kids, they're already a part of history and no one can ever take that away from them and all they can do now is just continue to add to it and I hope they're enjoying the moment. Whether we win or lose tonight, this is -- it's an important day because of the attention that's being focused on the game of women's basketball. So, they're going to feel proud of themselves down the road for being part of this. In well, you all deserve the attention, the sport does and thank you. You've been a wonderful ambassador, Geno, and just it's going to be a tough one tonight, though. We'll watch it. We're going to watch it It will be tough. It will be tough but, you know, I try to tell them, robin, you know, if you're a pretty good player and you pay attention and you do everything right, you know, someday you too could grow up to be knock quite robin Roberts but almost. So there you go. I was wondering where you were going with that, my friend. Thank you. And you can watch UConn in its quest for 100 when they take on South Carolina tonight at 9:00 P.M. On ESPN2. Love that man.
