Looks like coach’s “abrasive style” ran her off all the way to Geno and UConn lmao.

Having observed interactions with coach and players for most of her career I object to the term abrasive as being unfair. She demands a lot from her players in practice and games, but on a personal level I have seen someone who cares about her players and treats them more as a parent than a coach. While very talented, I am sure that Adebayo benefitted from their association the last two years, and that has allowed her to become a member of one of the top teams in the nation.

I was looking at roster on Go Racers and it only show 6 players, I know we got more they just not updated it. Either way looks like a very young team.

The roster has been updated by now, but still an extremely young team with the loss of Adebayo, Griffith-Wallace, and Crane. Cekeya Mack is the only senior on the team and the only juniors are the three juco transfers.

BTW, Brianna Crane has landed at Arkansas-Little Rock. Like JGW who is going to VCU, she'll sit a year and have two years of eligibility left. Evelyn Adebayo is immediately eligible as a grad transfer for her last year. A high risk/reward move by her, as she could go anywhere from being a starter at UConn to not being in the rotation.

I’ll be watching to see how she fares but won’t be rooting, petty or not. About all I’m gonna say.

While Adebayo will get a free year of grad school at UConn, and the possibility of a ring, it will have little to do with her contributions, as a player. After 10 games for the team, in which she has appeared in 5, she has 21 minutes, 5 rebounds, and 3 points total. I appreciate what she did for us last year, and enjoyed watching her dominate around the basket. Some thought it was the end of the world when she transferred, but I prefer the better defensive, gritty, hustling team that we have now.

She wanted to be somewhere else.

I wish her only the best.

FWIW, IMO if she is on the team, she contributes.
