YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

Ms. Delle Donee - I hope you're reading this. You have made a wonderful decision. You now have a family, tens of thousands strong, who will be there with you every step of the way, cheering wildly, filling every seat, loving and supporting you with every fiber of their being!

You'll come to appreciate how important women's basketball is in this state. It is sacred. The UConn women's team are the daughters of the State of Connecticut. My father, whose dying gift was the 2002 Championship, would have done cartwheels at this news!

WELCOME, WELCOME, WELCOME!!!!!

Bring on the Midnight Madness!!!!!

The Delle Donne's seem like a wonderful family. I can't imagine how tough the recruiting process must be to go through, especially when you're as coveted at Elena is.

A friend of mine has seen both Maya and Elena play in person and raves about them both.

This is great news, and I guess we can assume that now Pat Summit will refuse to play UConn ever again - even forfeiting possible ncaa matchups. Sour, sour grapes from ole rocky top. I thought Coach Summit had more class than she has shown lately.

Don't make your championship reservations just yet. Somehow Geno will find a way to screw up a perfectly great looking recruiting class!!! He'll beat them so far into repression, all they'll try to do is find answers to problems they didn't have, if he had just let them play!!!

This is considerably great news for the legions of Uconn Basketball fans. Elena may very well become as much a household name as Diana. It is time to renew the dynasty once more ....... just as it should be.

C'mon Kramer. Geez. I think of these ladies like daughters or sisters. Is she "hot?" I don't know, but she looks pretty driving the lane in the picture above. The curves I'm concerned with are the arc on her jumpshot. If its anything like DT's, then hell yeah, she's HOT!

OK, this is more like it. Best story on Elena Delledonne's commitment to UConn yet. Thanks John. A day later and I'm still pumped about the news, but won't be content until we get Elena's name down on paper.

Kramer I think you are too short for her, anyway at least she's a good player. How can those short guard stop her? We'll never see a guard this big anymore. No disrepect for Diana or Maya, but Uconn caught a big one. I think she'll come out as the best Uconn player ever.
