Auriemma To Coach Olympic Team

Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma reportedly is set to return as coach of the U. S. women's basketball team at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. The decision is due to be discussed Friday at a USA Basketball news conference in Connecticut. Auriemma will be the first repeat coach for the U. S. women's Olympic basketball team, which has won a gold medal at the past five games. Auriemma's team cruised through the 2012 London Games, winning by an average of 34 points, including an 86-50 rout of France for the title.
