OLYMPICS: U.S. women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma said the Olympic team should not be distracted by an employment discrimination lawsuit filed by a security official who claims she spurned his advances.
"It better not be, and I don't think it will be," said Auriemma, who called his team focused and intent on winning a gold medal.
Auiemma, who has won seven NCAA titles at Connecticut, said he would let lawyers worry about the lawsuit filed June 11 by NBA security official Kelly Hardwick, who alleges the coach tried to kiss her on a trip to Russia in 2009.
