Sabrina Ionescu Wants to Win the Whole Damn Thing

"Merrill is a senior writer for ESPN and spent time with Sabrina UNESCO in her family last year for an in-depth profile Liz gets called generational talent? Now sometimes it feels like every top prospect every year gets called a generational talent but with her. It does not seem like hyperbole. No it's not. She's the real deal. She is sort of the Serena Williams of women's basketball. She can shoot the ball. You'd ask you three out. Topped the net barely move. She can dish out passes with relative ease. It looks like she's not even trying cut by over us into double figures at a great pass by ZIP on her passes they get there so quickly and then she can crash the boards UNESCO rebound. She's opened for three it. And you look at the stat sheet and all of a sudden. Wow this kid has thirty points ten assists and ten rebounds and you didn't notice because she makes it look so effortless people are taking notice. Celebrities are taking notice celebrities. Have come just to watch her and the Oregon women play Which you would have never really heard of that. Ten or fifteen years ago like male professional athletes taking the time to meet her or give her a shoutout. I mean this is an example of game recognizing game. Well what have some of those other athletes said about her well Steph? Curry has called her. A legend Libron has called her queen and said that she so dope. Kobe has had. Actually you know gone to meet her. Him and his daughter had seen her play. And what evolved? There was a friendship. You didn't necessarily see that crossover before you know when you did in in times past. You're like wow if you ever saw like a male athlete especially the best of the best. When you're talking about Lebron and staff in Kobe I mean these are guys who've actually seen her play and have taken the time to either go on twitter. Whatever venue and to praise her play. That's a pretty big deal. You know. Even Gino Auriemma said. She's smart. She waits for you to make a mistake a lot of lot of guards. They go so fast that they don't give you a chance to make a mistake. She goes at a pace. Where she waits in waits and waits. When you screw up. She takes advantage of and that's saying a lot for from him who has seen so many great players. I mean every time you think of a great women's basketball player. We're almost always talking about somebody who went to uconn. Be Terachi or BRIANNA STEWART. Or Sue bird or my amore. We're almost always talking about someone who come from that program. Now we're talking about somebody who plays for Oregon and it's not like Oregon is in the middle of nowhere but it's not an easy place to watch basketball because they're on the west coast. You're not GONNA if the if they are on. Tv A lot of times. They're late but yet a more and more people are getting to know about her star power and the fact that you've got all of these these guys who are at the best of the best. You've got Lebron calling her queen I mean that is that's being displayed to all of his millions of followers. Some of the praise that she's received you just. You don't see that you haven't seen that in the past from other women's basketball players. Cobi not only praised her. He actually broke down her game for us. We'll look Sabrina and say okay. She's great handling the ball. Of course us. She's great onscreen roles. Of course she is but what makes really dangerous is that she can catch and shoot to right so she can move off the ball. She's just as dangerous. Doing this. Offer catching shoot. She was asked about him after his death and had this to say I mean everything I do. I do it for him. Obviously Really close friend and this season's for him. What was their relationship like so she met him he. He attended one of her games and over the past year so they became pretty close. She admired his game deeply and vice versa. He you know obviously Kobe with a daughter. Who's really into Basketball that was sort of a bond a she was really emotional after Learning of his death She dedicated that next game to him and kind of broke down just talking about him before we get to this season and what. Sabrina 's accomplishing. I WanNa talk to you about how this all began. How Her story starts? You did a big profile of Sabrina. Last year you spent time with her and her family was she like as a kid well so she had a really unique background. Her family's from Romania. She didn't grow up there but in nineteen eighty nine. The was a revolution in Romania and her father. Dan wanted to leave the country seeking political asylum and so he left for Northern California leaving his wife and their two year old son Andrei behind. He went there sort of for the American dream to kind of provide for the family told the family told his wife. Hey hopefully I can send for you in six months. Got a cab job and was trying to make some money now. That six months a turned into five years five years past he by this time he has turned that cab job into his own limousine company and he can send for the family. So that's nine thousand nine hundred five two years later. Pair of twins were born A boy and a girl and Sabrina came I of course because she would end up being sort of the bossie sibling of the family. And then Eddie came. I think eighteen minutes later That really forged her path having a twin brother who played basketball and the reason they started playing basketball was because both parents worked and maybe it was a simpler time but her dad would drop them off at a park down the street and Walnut Creek and she just started playing her. Daddy would play with other kids. Klay Curry COMP. Exactly she was the one bringing the curry. Okay say you know I was first recurring there you go. She'd get knocked around a lot and she do some knocking herself and sheer. Her skills really evolved from that street basketball into what we see. Now which is one of women's basketball's lead. I mean they got so good that they would start hustling older kids or even adults for like money. that they would use to buy slurpy and you know they speak Romanian and so they could actually Kinda have their own code when they're playing or even if they wanted to make fun of the players that they were playing against they talk to each other in Romania. Hate to use the word tomboy but she was You know her. Mom told me when Sabrina was in junior high. Some a counselor called and said hey you know. We're really concerned about her going to high school. Because she doesn't really communicate with any females. She over friends or boys and her mom's like yeah whatever. Okay I'll get right on that and did nothing. Because she knew that she was developing this young woman who was strong who had her own voice and did what she wanted to and was really good at it so her size helped them in that hustle. Did it lead to her being underestimated when she got to junior high and high school she was but by the time she was leaving high school and being recruited obviously she was heavily sought after. Shit. Yeah She. She wasn't the first person you would look for on the court. She wasn't necessarily anything spectacular By any means but once you saw her play in what she could do a lot of her stuff is like you know the old fashioned elbow grease stuff where you know she the reason. She has all those rebounds is because when she played with boys she never got the ball and so the only way she was getting the ball is if she somehow muscled her way in there. The family is not a basketball family. Didn't even know anything about basketball before they came here and even in those first years they. It wasn't something that they really knew. A lot about coming from Romania. Pretty much everything she has gotten has sort of. Been off of this whole work

South Carolina Gets Its First Win Ever Against UConn

"I have to say you know you're allowed to lose it am. Am gave once in a while. The other team plays better than us. so how `bout you write that somewhere. South Carolina play way better than Connecticut. That's allowed to happen once in a while and it's not like. What did you guys do wrong this year? We're like every other team in the country. God Forbid Horse That Ladies and gentlemen was the voice. As of Gino Auriemma the head coach of the Yukon. huskies on Monday night after they took a loss to the South Carolina gamecocks number one team in the nation. Welcome I'm into your ESPN w women's basketball podcast. Around the Rim I am your host China Robinson joined as always by my fantastic and fabulous producer to Rica. GEICO foster Bradsby and the story of Monday night was not that uconn loss. It wasn't even that South Carolina one because as you know I've been on the South Carolina Allina train for a minute. They've been number one in my AP poll for a while so we knew the gamecocks were probably going to dominate that game. However oh yeah and they did it behind tie? Harris who played forty minutes had nineteen points eleven assists and should be on everyone's national player of the year radar but the story. It was more about looking at that environment. South Carolina eighteen thousand heads pay team thousand fans in colonial life arena. The environment was incredible. You feel it coming through your television and I referenced this on my twitter but when dos daily got to South Carolina. No one saw this happening. No one saw her being successful. Well some of US did but everybody was like. Oh she can't do it there you know but she goes on to win the National Championship. Well how are they gonNA fans well. They got eighteen thousand in their last night. And I said this and I just WanNa references quickly and then we'll move on from this story we've got so much to cover but dawn invested in the marketing of her own team. She put her own staff her own resources out of pocket into building that that program in the community. She shook hands like the. NCAA needs to do a study of how she is built at. Because I don't know about you but it was beautiful. It was amazing. I tweeted about it as well. I took a screen shot from my computer to post that with the with the line. People say that no one watches women basketball. You're right like you can't even say that. Eighteen thousand eight hundred thousand. It was beautiful and just a testament to what can happen When the investment is made in obviously the athletics department is well but shoutout to the gamecocks just had an awesome display of their team but also the environment on Monday night?

Keith Kenneth rather. I've got a twenty five dollars target gift card. So hang on the line, Chuck's and get some information for you. Congratulations. Thanks to Mike and rainy millennial match game. Always fun. Let's go back to Super Bowl. Fifty three coverage. Ian O'Connor joining us now on the Mark Arum show. One of the few select people that I can actually say are more famous than me and went to mayors college. It's a small list, but it's a list nonetheless, Ian, O'Connor the fantastic sports writer joining us on the show. How are you Mark? How are you? Great to meet you a big fan of yours for years growing up in Connecticut used to read your stuff. And now you got a book coming out right around SuperBowl time talking about who. I call the greatest coach in any sport in history. Bill ballot. Check, I agree with you. And if they win Sunday night as I suspect they will. I think it's the greatest dynasty in the history of American team sports, college or pro because in college when you look at Nick save. Been Gino Auriemma John wooden. You name it every year. Those coaches can go out and recruit the best players in the country wherever they want. That's right. Chick in the pros when you win you get punished and you pick from the bottom of the barrel. So if he gets the number six in that sport, which is designed to prevent dominance. I think he goes to the top of the mountain. Yeah. The push for parody NFL doesn't even impact. And that's what separates him is. The fact that you know, there's no other team that consistently can do anything close to the patriots have done in this long run. That's right. And a lot of it. If you look at his college drafts, Mark he's had some hits and misses and everything in between. They haven't been that impressive but veteran free agents and players who've been cast off and other organizations. He finds a strength or two in those players emphasizes those strings and plays away from their weaknesses. Never asked. Anyone to do something? They physically can't do Rex Burkhead perfect example, most of American never heard of him with the Cincinnati Bengals. And here he is a Kansas City scoring the two most important touchdowns on the season. Right Bella chicks careers coach has been in New England. Anyway, has been about a thousand rexburg heads. And once that with the falcons involved in the Super Bowl, of course, which is a sore subject. It's obviously they're down Twenty-eight three. They win the game greatest comeback ever. Those last two scoring drives combined for about eighteen plays one hundred sixty six yards. Seven patriots touch the ball on those two drives. Yeah. None of those seven was drafted in the top one hundred of his draft class insane. You know, Connor joining us on the Mark Arum show new book, it's called ballot check ballot. Check the making of the greatest football. Coach of all time. What really stood out for me this year, you talk about Sony, Michelle he drafted, right? We knew how great he was here being the home of the Georgia BULLDOGS, but you got guys like Cordell Patterson. You talk about a cast off who filled an amazing dual role in the in the return game and in the running game. And James white who just you know, catches everything throw at them. Try James white fourth round pick Patterson moved into the backfield and use as a running back a featured Horning back for a while. And so even Chris HOGAN, he was a basically a college lacrosse player. Now, he's not a great receiver. But at times, he's played great. He. He played great in the AFC title game victory over the Steelers a couple years ago, he had over two hundred yards Jerry Rice out there sky played one year of college football at Monmouth. So he has Wes Welker west Welker and HOGAN are cast offs from AFC east teams. So it's amazing. What he how he sees talents in players that others don't see as a die hard giants fan. And I was at the Super Bowl in Arizona when when David Tyree made the helmet cat, forty two. Ended that undefeated run. So I mean, I'm giants blue and through as much as I despise the patriots. I have absolute nothing but respect for ballot. Check and Brady, and I don't see how they lose the game on Sunday. Well, the way they lose. It is the way if the Rams play like the giants played in those two games. And the Rams do have that defensive front like the giants. Did that can get pressure on Brady up the middle? He does not on the edges. He can step up. He doesn't mind that so much but up the middle and the giants did that to him in those two games and the Rams have Donald ensue. So there's a possibility they could blow up the offensive game plan. I'm not I don't bet sports, but I wouldn't bet against a bell. I wouldn't either. But everybody said that last year too, and they lost to falls and Peterson's, right? Who who thought Brady and Belgium will lose to that combination? Now, you look at McVay in Goth, you say are they really going to Pete Brady and Belichick, but you have to give them a chance physically on paper. They are the more talented team. But I can't see the patriots losing two Super Bowls in a row. Oh, Ian, great to meet you, go red foxes. Absolutely. Rick Smits NBA when I was there and not much sense in basketball and men's basketball. But I think we'll get back. Right. I think I'm number four behind you Smits Oreilly, and I might be the fourth most famous mayors grad..

"It's always followed by that other person's sucks. And and I think we've lost a little bit of ourselves in sports. I wish we could. I wish we could just appreciate. Sports. For what it is. Without having to. To constantly judge in constantly compare. But, but then again, if we did that there'd be no reason to have half the people that are on TV talking about sports because that's all they talk about is to tell you who's better than everybody else. Which I've always which I've always found interesting. You know now that I'm sitting here with a headset on. That people who are sports writers for a living. Then go on TV and tell you that the experts at football. And they're experts at baseball, and they're experts at basketball when really they just have an opinion. But if you would've voiced that opinion, you'd be an idiot. You don't know what you're talking about? But what makes them experts? While they're there sports reporters. Okay. That's their opinion less. They're giving you facts, which anybody can find the facts to giving you their opinion. And then you get to decide whether that opinion matters or whether it doesn't, but for anybody to tell you your opinion. Does it not? For anybody to tell you that your opinions, the greatest opinion, ever the worst opinion. You know? So I find these things interesting. I thought I'd throw them out there for and now the hall of fame. Baseball hall of fame Marian Rivera. Unanimous. You magin it. Some people are not unanimous. You know, some people not being unanimous hall of famers. Is about as bad. As voting for some of the people that have been voted into the hall of fame that have really lowered the standards of the whole thing. So to be surprised Marian Rivera's unanimous. It's crazy. Of course, he's unanimous. Of course. To not be unanimous. They should stop the voting. Anybody that didn't vote for Marian Rivera should not be allowed to vote anymore. It's like those people didn't vote for Hank Aaron unanimous. You're kidding me. Right. The first unanimous player that means there was some knuckleheads didn't vote for Mickey Mantle. That means there were some guys that didn't vote for Willie Mays. Why what's their opinions? So they're entitled to their opinion. But their opinion wasn't based on their baseball ability was based on prejudice their own prejudices. Whatever the prejudice might be, you know, they didn't like the guy whatever the case may be. So it's interesting, you know, as we're talking about this. I'm you know, just throwing stuff out there about opinions and judgments that people make. And the latest is the greatest. You're that you're the you're the greatest of all time. Until when until you're not. You know, what's was it that down Hanley song the new kid in town? Your everybody's favourite until somebody new comes along. That's the way it goes. So for those of you out there that are listening. We coaches we take a very humorous look at all this. We just sit back and smile, and and listen to all the stuff that's out there. And we watch and we have a great time. We love listening to people's comments. We love listening and reading. The stuff people sent into us. Anytime we're sent in. Hey, you're not gonna believe what was on this chat room. Yeah. What was it? Let me say and people describing what's going on on the team, you know, at practice or what went on in the huddle. Or you know, what what the coaches are thinking. That it's so ludicrous. And and it is it is again, it's people's opinion. People making judgments. And. That's part of the this part of the fun of of coaching. It's part of the fun of watching sports as part of the fun of reading about sports. You get to have an opinion. But remember this all of you that are out there? You know, everybody has an opinion. Everybody has an opinion. Everybody's entitled to opinion. You're just not entitled to say that your opinion is the only one that matters. You're not entitled to say that your opinion. Is more important than someone else's? Or that because you're right. The other person has the worst opinion in the history of opinions. You just entitled to your opinion. Stupid.

Fielding shortstop can make maybe league baseball in today's world. Your talk. You know, you'll talk the Charleston. You know, Jose guy was the eleventh man in the NBA see on the bench making ten million a year. You know when the best player in the league wasn't making ten million a year. Maybe when Charles was flying. But who cares? It's the world. And I think we have to accept it. You know, I think we have to accept what is today is let's compare today with today. Let's now compare today with yesterday we're last week or last month or last year or ten years ago. You know, so we live in we live in this world where whatever's happening today.

There's this missing of like, it's okay. It's okay to just be really really good without saying the other guy has to be bad. It's okay to just celebrate that you're good without having to demean someone by saying their lousy. I've I've always had always had a struggle with that. Always. And it's just manifesting itself everywhere fans. You know, a games people watching TV politics. This the greatest movie ever, you know, my son's famous for this as I'm sure, you know, a lot of people like this movie comes out top five movies of all time you go. We always have a fun thing with. Okay, that is like the forty fifth top five movie of all time. You've ever mentioned, you know. Oh, that's the greatest song ever see that guy. He's the greatest ever. Yeah. So quick to put labels on things. And we're quick the judge when really we should just appreciate it. Which just go out. That's really really good. Without having to then relegate somebody to something else and and taking the body of work. Like right now, we're getting ready for the Super Bowl. Right. And there's this. Well, who's the greatest quarterback of all time? And then Tom Brady's one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. No. Well. Tom brady. Tom Brady's a great quarterback. Bill bell checks a great coach. Yeah. But is he is good as Chuck? No. It doesn't have to be. He doesn't have to be. He just has to be known as a great coach Tom Brady is he the greatest quarterback of all time while I don't know. He's not as good as you know, Dan Marino or he's not as good as Terry Bradshaw. Joe Montana, or you know, name all the guys that that that are out there. Now, he's not as good as Peyton Manning. Then you go. I it just for argument while he has X number of titles. He has five the other guys have five bub-bubba. They threw for more yards. You go into all these crazy things and you start to realize that we've created a world where someone has to be the greatest.

But it just just the one of the things she you know, she mentioned. Going from, you know, Keith Richards to dealing with Johnny cash music, if you if you listen to her music and read about her and being on stage with Mick Jagger, and Don Henley and. You start to get a sense of how what a small world that is. And how musicians study other musicians, and it doesn't matter. What field? Whether it's you know, the Eric Clapton wanting to to learn what's going on in the world of blues. And and then having to study and going down to. Whether it was Mississippi and New Orleans in Memphis. And having you know. Guys. Like, Keith Richards, saying I wanna I wanna play with you. You know, Johnny Johnson on you know, the piano. It's it's incredible. How much? These these people believe in each other and wanna work with each other. You know, people that are great wanna work with other people that are great. In a greatness is is is defined by the people you surround yourself with. And and the however good you are if you find people out there that are as good if not better than you are at what they do. And you're able to incorporate them into your life. It's. It's the one way that I note to elevate yourself. The other thing that I thought was interesting was. You know, Cheryl mentioned the couple of things in in reading her background this idea of. And it's been in the news a lot lately that you know, this celebrity's getting involved in social causes. You know, you hear both sides of it. You know, there's this the one that came out in the NBA where somebody said, you know, somebody from TV told LeBron thinks shut up and dribble. And then I think he went he ran with that did a thing with it, which I thought was really good to then some athletes being criticized for not saying anything. Not using their platform. It's an interesting dilemma that great athletes, really famous athletes, or it could be, you know, musicians actors actresses you name it. It's it's it's a unique situation. Do I do I use my platform for my personal views or do I stay in my lane? I've always I've always wondered why it's not okay for a great athlete to have a political view. Or a a great songwriter, a great musician to have views on anything other than their music, as if they're not entitled to have an opinion. Whatever that opinion is. That's like saying, you know, that stockbroker shouldn't have an opinion on anything other than. Buying and selling stocks that truck driver shouldn't be allowed to comment. Which if you take that they say, well, you know, those people on TV that comment all the time on what's going on. This should not be allowed to comment on anything other than. How to be a broadcaster how to be a TV person? They should be talking about anchorman, and we'll pharaoh not about politics sports or anything else that that's out there. So it's kind of ludicrous that just because you have a platform, you should only be allowed to talk about your particular thing. But people have opinions. You know, if you're listening out there, you have an opinion. The only difference is you don't have a place to express your opinion. And that's not anybody's fault. That's just is what it is. You know, and you may agree with some things that you know, Sheryl Crowe says, you know, women have to work really really hard harder to men to achieve the same level. You could say, well, you know, I find that to not be true or you could say I great. But you can't say she shouldn't have the opinion. She shouldn't have that opinion. I mean, that's to me.

So until we have a cure, obviously, the best technology is going to render the best Satistics and early detection is definitely going to be our our best weapon, particularly against the mortality rate, and and also against the level of treatment. And so one of the things that was attractive to me about the whole logic three D mammographies. It's it's a three D machine.

You know, and had seen on encouraged me to go back in you know, I might have had to have chemo or worse. You know? It's you don't know how fast a cancer is growing at, you know, at the six month, Mark and with a three D at least we're able to see cancers at an even earlier stage it eliminate eighty five percent of the false negatives.

It's a genetic trait where it makes it more difficult to see cancer cancer shows up as white on a mammogram is so do the dense areas of abreast and also the statistic goes up the limit of does breath and having breast cancer.

"Toward the end goal. My aunt goal was to write music that I felt like that something that had a place, you know, documentary history and not history literally. But you know, thing it's time to place on who we are in our humanity. And I always like. More right. That are. More practice. The better player. I become the more. I study other records etcetera producer become and putting in the hours and being into the joy of the work as opposed to excitement as the outcome. And it's you know, it's similar to sports in that. There's a lot of a lot of work that goes into it before you even hear the starting gun go off, and it's the preparation sick at you to the starting blocks. And then what happens after that is where you know, fear. It comes in and motivation, and grit and determination apathy, and all of those things that create the ones percents a greatness. But it's it's all the preparation that goes into it before you ever get say that you know, that creates that creates the outcome and being into the process. So they has always been. What has been the thing? I can look at. And I could I could Mark on timelines I've gotten much better than it was in nineteen you know, ninety six I started. And that's you know, that's you have to be that. Otherwise, there is there is no great reward. Even winning the awards. It's difficult to own those words that really intrinsic Elman unless you know, what you put into it. That seems to be. Almost a metaphor for, you know, your whole life, you know, reading your history. And and obviously, listen to your music, you know, comes across. That, you know, you're telling stories, but it seems like, you know, your life is all about there's a process to get to where you're going in the processes as you said that ends up becoming the focal point rather than than the end. I was lucky I grew up in a small town in the sixties and seventies. I I was born in fifty two so times war different than that mom and dad that were just, you know, they were they raise us with what we used to refer us a good spirit and work ethic. And they believe this. And that if you work hard that you'll get where you're where you're wanting to go you work hard, and you do your best and things happen. And you know, the music business is sort of anesthetic to that. Well, maybe not necessarily totally go, but you know, for for a woman in the music business, particularly business that's run by. Predominantly by men. The record stations are predominantly run by mail music programmers. You know, it's just women have their place, and it's been really it's almost like what Billie Jean King went to the idea that we'd actually have to fight to be treated as real artist. Like, what she did as, you know, women getting paid for their athletic ability, like men, do it's you know, it's been slow going and attitudes have been. Have been sort of behind the times, but it's all catching up, and I'm glad to see that happen. But yeah, you know, I I think the struggles it's the time that you fall down, and you get back up at your your drive, and that that sort of fortify, your perseverance internationally. And it also gives you that story. You mentioned something about catching up, you know. And you know sports in America. I think women have earned a certain place in the sports world earn being the the key word they've earned it. And now, you you you look at you know, when I was a kid, I'm just a little bit older than you are. But the the music on. There was very few women that were prominent in the music world. And now, you know, you look at whether it's, you know, pop or rock or jazz or. You name it hip hop that. It's unbelievable. How many women are at the forefront of the music world today. And you feel like you were part of like the beginning of of that wave that happened. Think. Well, I think I was at the beginning of producing as a female. I was probably one of the very first females ever produced a record on her own that was a commercial success and one of the I think one of the first one actually sees opportunity without the support of. Record levels or anything else? I just basically went in and started making my record and..

"Well, you probably heard the little jingle there. You know, you wondering why holding court which you know, is a little bit of familiar music. That's show crow famous singer songwriter. Shell is going to be our guest for a few minutes when talk about her career low bit challenges of being an early pioneer in the producing world. Former high school track star and her battles with with breast cancer. And then some some ramblings from myself. It's all of you my opinion. And if you don't like it off, it's my show. So hope you enjoy since your famous former track athlete. Yes. I really love the sport. Since your famous track athlete. But low hurdles. Yes. The lower so long ago that it the raises were measured in yards. Not meters. How about that? That's how how long ago it was. What made you what made you what made you pick that? Or did it pick? You how did that happen? Oh, you know what I was. I was a kid and and still. Never enjoy going to gym and working out or getting in a car driving to the I love sports. I love the sport of sport. I love the competition. And I was Bill. To run. I was skinny kid was really long way. And I'm still asking person long leg. That's just not a kid, and I just I just like being out and nature and the sunshine and running it's like, tennis, and swimming, and I love water store than so track is an obvious. May I always ran as a kid, and how that he wasn't sporting sports that wanted to participate, and we didn't have chemo basketball team didn't have soccer or anything like that. So tennis and track were kind of the thing. The Bank sports. So I loved it. And I could run fast, but I could also leap so I've gotta say to hurdles. Whenever you didn't win where you pissed. Yeah. Absolutely. It was motivation to work harder. And actually, you know that has really through Serbia well in my career, you know, every time I feel like I have a a mediocre. So I, you know, the next time I walked at a state, it's more prepared than ever. And it is it is it served me. Well. What you know? I think the the average person out there that doesn't understand female a female mentality in terms of competition. In the past would always assume that. Just by nature. They would not be as competitive as as men, and I've learned over my all the times that I've coached that. There's a certain side of women that is way more competitive Dement. Have you seen that? Yeah. And you know, it's interesting to watch, you know, and I'm also feel where women really have to fight through their position and not necessarily competing with each other. But it just competing with more in sports. I think there is a in most women there is this feeling and a commitment and just an underlying motivations to be the best that we can be. But also to be better than we were the last time we did what we were doing. And that's something. I think that is. It's it's you it's not necessarily unique to women. But it's definitely a great asset to have in, you know, in any area, whether it's a business or sports, and that to you know, to to weigh yourself against yourself. And and and it certainly creates I it creates a great motivation. I think I know it's great to be the person that you're running alongside. But it's also great to better your time as yourself for. When you when you got into the to the music business. You know, it's not all it's not all peaches and cream and. There were there were setbacks in there were. Times when you had the really like you said when you were an athlete you have to fight back, and you go how bad do I want this? What am I willing to do to get this? You know, I I actually talked to young people that they can it is different. Now, obviously fame was not a giant motivating motivating factor. When I got started not like it is now where it, you know, you're you're one of a brand than you are an artist. I always tell kids that you.

"Do something. No team had done in years during the regular season. Beat the mighty Yukon huskies streak ended at one hundred and twenty six games. Connecticut public radio's Frankie Graziano was on campus today getting reaction, it was quiet at uconn student union students are on winter break, but union ratio. Thacker was there studying for a science test one of the greatest dynasties in sports? But last night they lost their streak after one hundred twenty six games such as pretty tragic, but still for the students that were still on campus. There wasn't a lot of concern about the basketball squad. Emily read is a junior who plays on the ice hockey team. It's definitely the best team in the country. So it's a really big deal. I'd say when they lose just because it's not frequent go that long over four years without a regular season loss is extraordinary at any level. That's Bob Joyce, the voice of the Yukon women for eighteen. Seasons. That includes a time. The team went on another unbelievable run four consecutive championships are one hundred and eleven straight victories. No other team men or women had one that many games in a row in the history of NC, double A, division, one basketball and start to practice. Their work ethic. Is extraordinary. And this is the result. You get and not only this win streak, but all the national championships they've garnered over the last quarter century. It's just amazing numbers that people can throw on it. You can't miss seventy percent of its shots in a loss against Baylor last night. No huskies team had done that poorly since the nineteen ninety s Michelle voelpel covered the game for ESPN. This together and not really have very many nights. Oh, heck over the last twenty five thirty years like they did last night. Just speaks to how incredibly consistent that they have been. And and I think that's something. Everybody who follow sports after just sort of multiple at voelpel says there's no reason for uconn fans, the panic just yet the team will be a favourite when the NC double A tournament starts in March despite yukons regular season success. The school has gone several years without winning a national title the team made it to the final four without losing a game and its last two years but lost both times in the semifinals back on campus ratio Fakher the science student isn't worried that the teams dynasty is over not with Gino Auriemma as head coach. I guess.
