STORRS — Geno Auriemma has teetered into unfamiliar territory — between a rock and a hard place.
“I’ve been struggling a little bit trying to figure out where to go with that,” Auriemma said Wednesday, his head down, speaking slowly. “We’re kind of in a little bit of a conundrum, so to speak.”
Auriemma, 1,040 wins, 19 Final Fours, 11 national titles and all, is running out of answers when it comes to divvying up playing time for UConn’s bench.
“We have guys that need to play, and I know that,” he continued. “When they play, they don’t play the way I expect them to play. And then if I keep playing them, they think that playing like that is OK.
