As we have learned in the men's game, and we learn again with Kemba Walker's announcement today, players will, at any point, leave early for the NBA. The women's game is different. "Thank goodness," Geno Auriemma said. "[Maya] would be gone after her freshman year."

Greene is reunited with former UConn teammates Renee Montgomery and [Tina] Charles. "I'm really excited she's coming," Charles said. "She's going to be a great addition to the team.
