Congrats to Coach Valorie Kondos Field and her entire staff for another amazing season. As A noted earlier this week Coach Kondos and Coach John Wooden are good friends (unlike the imaginary friendship former men's basketball coach often played up in the press) and she often uses many of his coaching techniques. Suffice to say if she keeps this up she will carve out her special place in the UCLA lore. Actually she already has.

Amazing coach whose team put together an electric performance to cap another amazing team this season.
