Walker said the biggest difference in the Huskies’ supporting cast as of late has been confidence. And that doesn’t just include Napier, Smith and Lamb, but players such as forwards Alex Oriakhi and Charles Okwandu and guard Jamal Coombs-McDaniel, as well.

"Confidence is a huge part," Lamb said Tuesday during the Huskies' pre-Final Four media day in Hartford. "I think it's taken us to the next level. Because you know Kemba's gonna go out and get 30 points, but if he doesn't have help, then we can't win games."

Napier listens intently to teammates being interviewed and says things like, 'No, no no. That's not what you mean,' as he did recently in Washington with Jamal Coombs-McDaniel. He leans in and says things like, 'C'mon, that glass has to be half full,' as he did recently in Anaheim when Roscoe Smith spoke about the improbable nature of UConn's run to the Final Four.

Nope, there won't be the Pat and Geno Show. Those Brittney Griner wingspan graphics? Gotta shelve 'em until next season. Oh, and that rematch between UConn and Baylor, which met in a thriller at the start of this season? Not happening.

Yet here's the thing. Not one of those 3,000 points was scored against Tennessee. Not one of Moore's 3,000 points came against the most decorated women's program in college history. Not one against UConn's archrival and the coach who wanted her so badly that she would reduce herself to making petty accusations of Auriemma's integrity and continue the assault for more than two years.

UConn receiver Isiah Moore Suspended - Courant.com
UConn senior receiver Isiah Moore has been suspended for a violation of team policies, coach Paul Pasqualoni said Tuesday. "He's still a part of what we're doing; he's just not out here right now," Pasqualoni said after the seventh of 15 spring practices at the Shenkman Training Center. "It's been a couple of weeks."
