just like everyone else. And he doesn't red shirt freshmen, like they do on the men's side.
Because the WBB talent pool is not as deep or broad as the men's, and the fact that he is a great basketball coach with 8 national titles, he can command the cream of the crop of WBB right now. Any girl who has talent and is serious about winning national championships, becoming an All American and a national player of the year, will want to go to UCONN because Geno knows how to mold them into great players and win championships.
That wasn't always the case with him. After he won the 1995 championship, Geno struggled to get top talent. He not only had to compete with Tenn but also Stanford and Duke.
As the WBB talent pool gets deeper and broader, more WBB teams will improve. That's happening now, but when will critical mass be reached? I don't know. Maybe when Geno retires from coaching. He's got at least 8-10 years before his health becomes a serious factor to his ability to coach. Pat Summit most likely was suffering from dementia before it went public and I think that contributed a lot to her inability to recruit the top talent against UCONN. She was 59 when her ailment was publicly announced and she had to retire.
