and Griffin just committed to the Huskies. Considering Horston is now the 2nd highest rated 2019 player by Hoopgurlz and was named MVP of the recent world championships, I think Geno would've loved to have her in the fold.

However, the mutual interest seemed to come up late in the process and never seemed palpable like, say Megan Walker (positive for UConn) or Sam Brunelle (not so good).

Based on Huskey faithful leading up to and just after her decision, it reminded me of The Bench's reaction to Evina Westbrook: was a very highly rated player; took a visit relatively late in the process; and then chose.....Tennessee.

Well, Horston showed she's a very gifted player this summer and can make teams better, particularly when she's with the right players and coaches. There's some good talent in Knoxville (Westbrook, Davis), but Holly's challenge is to mesh that individual talent into more of a cohesive unit, as Berube did (whether one cared for the way she went about it is for another thread).
