In this UConn vs Georgetown post game news conference, UConn head coach Geno Auriemma explains where he thinks Paige Bueckers is in her return to the lineup, in UConn's 84-38 rout of Georgetown in the Big East tournament opener. Geno: "it improves little by little every day...but she's not back where we need her to be yet." He was actually glad that Bueckers "got knocked on her butt" on a layup attempt, saying "I think she realizes she's okay." Auriemma also emphasized that their commitment to defense has always been a UConn staple. The Huskies held Georgetown to just 9 points in the first half, but "even if we're up 20 , if you're not going to guard anybody, you're not going to be in the game."
