Colorado Springs, CO (Sports Network) - USA Basketball has announced a Friday afternoon press conference at Gampel Pavilion in Connecticut, at which time it is expected that UConn's Geno Auriemma will be named head coach of the women's national team for 2013-16.
Although USA Basketball has not announced the hiring, the location of the press conference along with a media report, suggests Auriemma will be given the nod for a second time.
