Two women’s basketball coaches, who have had a contentious relationship to say the least, continue talking to each other.
Tennessee coach Pat Summitt and Connecticut’s Geno Auriemma chatted amicably after the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony Saturday night at the Tennessee Theatre.
Their conversation, however, didn’t constitute a summit conference.
“All light stuff,” Summitt said Wednesday. “It wasn’t anything crazy or anything.”
Summitt said that she and Auriemma talked about the ceremony, particularly Rebecca Lobo. She was inducted Saturday, becoming the first Connecticut women’s player to enter the hall.
Summitt and Tennessee pulled the plug on the series between the two schools in 2007 after submitting more than 30 pages of documents to the SEC office in 2006, alleging a pattern of recruiting violations at UConn.
