How do you find out about all this? I doubt if it's talked about openly. But if true, it's sad.

Kim must have very large closets, or cages for some of the outfits.

Very glad to see UConn women lose anytime. I noticed when Coach A walked toward McGraw for the traditional post game handshake, that he didn't even come close to looking at her, just turned his head away from her dismissively, no respect for her as his opponent, unprofessional and tasteless..and that's what I so dislike about Gino

I can't believe Pat cancelled the series because of that.

I also remember something about a job for Moore's mother. That must have turned out not to be true since no sanctions were handed down for that one either.
"They", according to some things I have read, set her Mom up in a nice house and helped her, in some way, start a business. The business was selling purses and other things with Maya's likeness on it. Don't remember all the details.

It's all old "news". I just keep up with it as it hits the wires. Yeah, her clothing might need a cage.

Just Google around Wooden and cheating. You'll find some interesting reads. All the championship teams were basically bought with him turning a blind eye. Former players will attest to it.

An unsavory type "booster" provided jobs, money, cars ..you name it to several of Wooden's players. Wooden claimed to be completely unaware of any of it.

Auriemma hasn't been sanctioned by the NCAA, he was chosen to represent the USA as coach of the Olympics team, and is loved by his players, past & present.

Plus, putting down another Lady Vol fan for stating their opinion gets you no respect either.
Shut up troll.
