A big week for Lauren as she turned 21, and was also named the Big East’s Defensive Player of the Year. If her name is familiar to my blog readers, you’re not mistaken as I profiled her last year when she was named first team All-American. UCONN had a great year but unfortunately lost to Florida in the finals last week and therefore will not be playing in the upcoming NCAA Championship.
The good news of that is Lauren is now free to go out and celebrate her accomplishments legally with a cold brew or two. But first she said she has to get through her finals, then she will go out and celebrate. Good for you Lauren for having your priorities straight and I look forward to buying you a belated birthday beer soon!
