Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore talk about UConn influence on Team USA

(WTNH)–The female version of the “Dream Team” will play tomorrow in Bridgeport.

It’s one of the Americans’ few stops before heading to Brazil to chase gold at the Rio Games. The U.S. ladies are looking for their sixth straight gold medal.

Geno Auriemma and the team were in New York on Thursday afternoon, practicing for their exhibition game against Team Canada.

You didn’t have to look too far to find a familiar face. Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird, Maya Moore, Tina Charles, and Breanna Stewart are all playing for their old college coach.

Helping Auriemma and the U.S. staff are another pair of Huskies–Jennifer Rizzotti and Jamelle Elliott.

Of course, it’s a team of 12, but it’s hard to ignore the UConn influence.
