San Antonio-Arizona Wildcats women’s basketball coach Aditya Barnes said on Saturday that after defeating UConn 69-59 in midfield, at a moment of joy, she squeezed the middle finger and foul language after the game with the team. She did not apologize for this. Final four.
Immediately following the ESPN camera, after winning on Friday night, Wildcats immediately won a place in the national championship for the first time in school history. At her post-match press conference, Barnes admitted: “I did say a curse. The curse was basically,’Forget everyone….If everyone doesn’t believe us, forget everybody. Personally, because we believe in us.'”
In the Zoom preview on Saturday, when previewing the national championship game against Stanford on Sunday, Barnes said that she thought she was sharing a private moment with her team after getting rid of her troubles.
She said: “Honestly, I am with my team. I think this is a more intimate exchange.” “I told my team something I really feel. I know how they feel and are in It looks different on TV, but I didn’t apologize for it because I don’t need to apologize. That’s how I feel. Currently my team. I will not back down. We have already fought together. We trust each other. So I’m here In those moments, I was like this, so I don’t apologize for that. It’s me, it’s just me, I must be me.”
Barnes and her players said that they were disrespected multiple times throughout the tournament and ended up in the NCAA, which prevented them from watching the promotional video of the Women’s Final Four earlier this week.
Arizona forward Sam Thomas said: “After a twist, we won more things, got more love, and then thought we were finally respected. Obviously, the videotape and other things that happened It’s like a dagger.” “So I think we are just, we fight for ourselves. If people want to support us, we will love it. If people want to hate us, I mean, we will enter National champion, what else can you say?”
