Except EDD left no impact on Delaware. They won nothing and quickly returned to oblivion. Lobo had an impact because she changed a program from cow town (literally the most famous thing about UConn was the ice cream they made from their own dairy herd) to perennial contender.
Lobo tends to get all the credit for UConn's rise, but there were some other factors and players who made their ascent possible. The 91 team, Sales, Rizzotti, Wolters, Elliott, and some good coaching, two large venues, good press coverage, etc.
